Happy Sunday and Happy August!

This week at Our Beautiful World we have the prompt
Picked for us by the lovely Mandy

This is a lovely make by my Aunt ... It's done with embroidery silks and it's my late GSD Holly
Here's a close up of those stitches

It's hard to photograph as it's in a glass frame but it's pretty amazing huh?
Here's one she did of a cat

I don't do a lot of sewing now but my earlier cards and crafts often featured sewing and stitches

And I think that's why I had to eventually get a new sewing machine!
Now I am addicted to stitched dies

creating faux stitches

We'd love it if you joined in with us this week ... hopefully you won't share anything too gory as in hospital stitches Lol!

Hop on over to the Blog to see what the rest of the team are sharing
And have a beautiful Sunday!

Your Aunt's work is so amazing! I loved stitched dies, too! We keep finding these connections (your 1/2 brother & my husband's newly discovered family), so I really think one day we should meet in person! Hugs, Greta

I'm staring in amazement at your Aunt's stunning embroidery - how beautiful are those two artworks. I too did a fair bit of sewing in the past and have found with GD Sophie I am again enjoying making a few items. Very little on my cards but your stitched dies I have noticed quite a lot and realllly like them. Super photos, Ros
