An Inspirational Blog

I have been soaking up the beautiful work to be seen at  http://karenruane.blogspot.com/

Karen does fabulous work.  Absolutely lovely.

I decided I would have a go and  see how it would turn out.
Needless to say I thoroughly enjoyed it.  I made a little pin cushion and backed it with some of that felted jersey stuff that I have stashed away in the cupboard.
Anyway a couple of photos to show my work/play for this morning.






The little piece of embroidery in the middle was a cutout from an old
piece of vintage linen.  (I didn't embroider that, in case you were wondering.)
I was pleased with how this turned out.

Thankyou Karen for your lovely work .
It is an inspiration to me and I expect many others.

  2. Hi Joan! I enjoy Karen's work as well...I even bought a scrap of hers from her etsy shop so I could have it for inspiration. Your attempt is lovely and I'm glad you've honored it by posting about it on your blog. I think Karen would be delighted!
