Some time ago, I posted photos of the ATCs I made for the Embroidery Association of Canada annual ATC swap. I had forgotten all about it after that so was delighted to open my mail yesterday and find the cards I received in return. Without further ado, here they are!
Believe it or not, I think this one was made by one of the Youth Members of Starfish Stitchers in Newfoundland. Her name is Hannah Freake and she needlefelted this gorgeous heart and then embellished it with embroidery and bling. Isn`t it great to see the tradition of embroidery being carried on in youth?
This ATC is entitled "Candlewick Strawberry" and was created by Connie Cook, a member of Norfolks Own Needlearts Guild. I was so happy to receive this and see all the beautiful knots. It kind of ties in with the TAST stitch for this last week although I think they are colonial knots instead of french knots. Either way it is a great example of what can be done with this stitch.
A heartfelt to all these ladies for their lovely creations! This is just one of the happenings at EAC (Embroidery Association of Canada) that makes it such a treat to be a member!
