I walked my legs off


I learned how to do needle weaving. You can't see the feet, but they are there, attached to the legs with their 'varicose veins'. You can see a better pic of the legs here http://tinyurl.com/6ac7e9
The fabric is my usual hand-dyed, I stencilled some leaves using Markal (Shiva) paintstick, then free machined a couple of leaves, the rest are woven. I would have fme'd more but my machine clonked and had to go to be serviced/repaired.
If you would like to see this piece in real life along with other stuff I have done and loads of fab embroideries, you can. Sleaford Embroiderers will be exhibiting in the roof gallery at The Hub in Sleaford http://www.thehubcentre.info/ from the 4th to the 14th September.

I'm glad the machine clonked. I like the needlewoven leaves the best!
How about some bugs and snails and creepy crawlies in the grass? :o)
