Oh, dear blog, how I have missed thee! The week has passed in a blur yet again. I am finding it so hard to make time to get on here lately. But...I have just found out from my doctor that I have an easily treatable medical reason for being so tired all of the time, so that is a relief. And here I was thinking that it was just the norm for having two kids!!
Just sharing a little peek at the latest custom kids' artwork embroidery wall art that I have completed and posted off to the US today. Did you know that it is Father's Day on June 17th in the US? I am learning a lot about the United States as a seller on Etsy.

As you can see, it's a more mature drawing than the ones I have made into embroidered wall art in the past. I love the bright colours and all the details. Isn't it delightful!

(The customer suggested that I cut out some of the drawing, so it would fit in a circular embroidery hoop more easily.)

As usual, I had a lot of fun with this. I love using the child's own handwriting for the caption, it is such a great personal touch.
I used Kunin Eco Fi Felt for the applique on this one, something I am experimenting with lately - it is polyester felt made from recycled post-consumer plastic bottles. It has an interesting texture, and while I do not like it as much as 100% wool felt, it is still a good quality felt that has the benefit of being suitable for vegans.
Must dash off to get into some apron making, now that both my kids are sleeping soundly. :)
