My Creative Space - Angel Stitching

Yah! My Creative Space is back for 2010! To see more spacers or to join in yourself, visit Kirsty at Kootoyoo.

Many months ago,the lovely Anna put out a call on her blog for people to decorate her beautiful Shiny Happy Angels screenprints as examples on her shop of how they can be put to use. Here they are...


At the time, I was totally engrossed in embroidery and thought these angels would look pretty cool all flossed up... So, I put my hand up. And I'm sorry to say Anna's been waiting all these months for me to get to it. But a new year always begins with honouring promises from the last year, doesn't it? So, yes... my creative endeavours at the moment are finishing my embroidered angel. Sorry to keep you waiting Anna!

It looks so great I'm sure it's worth the wait Kylie! :) Yay for spying on other people's creativity. xo

Vic said...

Wow, that looks like a lot of stitches & a whole lot of work...!

Kirsty said...

They are going to look gorgeous "flossed up".

Tania said...

Every time you do your stuff with floss, I have to do a hyperventilate. Seriously shiny happy stitchery of the teeniest kind!

Kate said...

I am absolutely positive you will be forgiven for being late when Anna sees what you have done with her angels. I love the idea of bloggers working together on each other's work. I hope to get involved in something like this this year.

How sweet is that?? Lovely embroidery too, love Posie

Gina said...

Kylie, you are the floss guru.

Little Eve said...

How beautiful they will look when they're finished. And I'm sure it's a lovely process, to watch something emerge into a colourful, textured piece. Enjoy!

can see that you will make these angles look amazing.
thanks for your comments.
i still have the same comment thingy but am going to get rid of it because it actually makes it impossible to check out the blogs of people who comment and don't go through the sign in. . . defeats the purpose i think!

It's that groovy shade of very bright and positive yellow that I love. Goes well on an Angel I say...

Already that angel looks more amazing than I ever had imagined. Please don't exhaust yourself before Jan is even over, because your handiwork looks incredible and very time consuming. I absolutely love it. Well done.
