I’ve been working hard on ‘improving’ my hands recently, to go from drawing & painting EVERY day, to months of ‘not’.. has really taken it’s toll, I’m trying to get more fine control over them, so I’ve taken up playing with Embroidery!  It’s something I can do in my awkward position ouch! , and I’m getting great results ! YAY!

I’m releasing these two embroidered pieces tonight, something new, but I hope you all like them !  Hopefully, I will release a few more of these in the future too!

  1. Suzanne, those two embroidery pieces are so sweet! I love how you even got stripey stockings on the little Gorjuss gal!! LOL

  2. Congrats to the winner!! Your Embroidery is beautiful !! I embroider myself and have since I was a child. You have done a marvolous job on it !! Hope you are feeling better. I know what it is like not to feel well for a long time. Many prayer to you and blessings !!

  3. Ohhh those little embroideries are so gorgeous! People like you and a couple of other people I know put me to shame. You manage to create such gorgeous things even in pain and here's me getting more and more backlogged! Slapped wrists and off I go 😀 Thanks for the much needed kick up the bum (even if you didn't realise you were giving it *g*)

  8. I'm so excited I won woohoo!

    I'm glad you find stitching helps, I do cross stitch and have heard people say that they find it helps if they have problems with their hands as well as being relaxing and stress relieving.
