She dedicates her book:
To every little girl
who has cried over her stitches
There's a large family of chain stitches. Who would have thought?!
On another subject, I was watching Countryfile on TV last Sunday (cos I'm a country girl at heart) and there was an item on needle felted birds by an artist, Eve O'Neill. They were gorgeous.
I've had a go at needle felted leaves, but never a bird!
This birthday card caught my eye in M&S and it's a little needle felted cat and mouse. I think M&S sell some lovely cards and they're reasonably priced too.
I finished the chain stitch square, mine looks a bit wonky. It's so dark in the house due to the poor summer weather. I can't get any light for a decent photo.
Then it was on to the spokes, I suppose that's the spider.
I'm sure I've done this stitch before.
I went looking and found this Dorset button, I knew I'd worked a spider web stitch!
Now I've put the spokes in. Ready to weave the web.
The instructions are very clear in this kit, but it took me a couple of tries before I got the rhythm.
The last step was to chain stitch the orange thread round the outside...
...and take a photo of the back!
