In the past few years, I don't know why, but I don't embroider much on my Pfaff. It sews a mean straight stitch which I use daily. Well, a few embroidery opportunities came up lately and I did these embroideries in the past few days.
This little kitchen octopus is what the auction winner chose for her custom embroidered chef's apron. This is just the sample that I stitched out to make sure I had the colors right. This weekend, I'll stitch this out on the apron with the name of the cook.
These little embroideries will be perfect focus pieces on my future crazy quilted pieces. I loved doing these today and there were very few floating threads on these designs.
This topiary is 2 inches by about 3.5 inches..
