second one down

I have finally finished my second (and final) entry for the Royal Melbourne Show. This one is for the machine embroidery category. I have really procrastinated about this entry - mainly because I couldn't decide what to embroider. In the end I went with a small art nouveau design I've been working on for a while ...


The embroidery is in peacock blue thread, on beige linen, with some accent from a small geometric print I got at Patchwork on Central Park this morning (love that store!). I think I'l print this design too - I'm quite happy with how it turned out. Hope you're having a good Saturday!

Very nice. I like how the embroidery compliments the accent fabric.

It looks great, I love that shade of blue. Small confession - my entry isn't finished, I'm undecided about fabric choices and wishing I had more to choose from! I've got some work to do today.
