Felted wool is such a delight to stitch on; I don’t know why I don’t use it more often. I found this tiny scrap of hand-dyed felted wool, which came to me as a gift last year. I think this is the right place for it to feel at home.
Just a 2.5″ circle, on hand-dyed cotton, with very simple hand embroidery. The cotton threads are hand-dyed too. That pistil stitch around the edge is one that I like a lot, though I don’t use it that often. I find it very interesting that each type of embroidery stitch has its own personal qualities, and that sometimes only one particular stitch will do.
And congratulations to Eve – the set of four stickers will be on its way to you soon. Thank you, everyone who joined in. I wish I had enough stickers to send some to all of you.
