Wynken, Blynken & Nod



I wrote about the wonderful Embroidery Swap in the Phat Quarter Group on Flickr a little while ago here on Feeling Stitchy and last week I was the lucky recipient of this absolutely awesome piece made for me by Lisa!  The embroidery is based on an illustration by Sheilah Beckett and depicts the poem about Wynken, Blynken & Nod. Lisa is a very talented embroiderer and her attention to detail is amazing. Click on the photos to see all the gorgeous details!

Look at all the tiny and precise stitches and I love the use of metallic thread on the fishes!

The tinting of the fabric really adds to this piece and the variety of stitches used is impressive. Thank you Lisa for making such an inspired and lovely embroidery for me!

On display in my living room!
