back to needlework!

i'm kinda alternating between halloween and needlework here, and since i still haven't had a chance to write up my thoughts on the class this weekend (i've been housesitting with no computer - i need a laptop!), i thought i'd post a project that i'm really really happy with.

again, this is a project that i've been planning forever, and just recently got around to doing. now i can't wait to do more!

two of hearts

this was really hard to photograph, but i think you get the idea. the stitching is all done in metallic thread (which is SO much easier to use on vinyl than on fabric!), and the vinyl has a bit of a sheen, so it's a very luminous and sparkly piece.

cool, huh?

Very cool! You do such original work - I never would have thought of this!

LOVE this!! My guy sings this song all of the time, so it's already stuck in my head. Now I have a lovely image to go along with it.

thank you everyone! i really love how it worked out, i have a few more planned for the near future as well.

mafiosagirl, i totally had to youtube the video, because i couldn't remember the song itself!

anonymous, imagine a record of accordion music with an embroidered accordion on it..... that would look so amazing - but would it break your heart to see the record destroyed?
