Jane's embroidery

If you saw my WOYWW entry with the Jane Austen stamps, this post shows one of the projects I made. Here's a close-up of Jane:

And here's the full view:

I was searching for something to use and found this old embroidery hoop which seemed very apt!

The stamps are Artistic Outpost Jane's Countryside and are available from Happy Daze. I've teamed them up with the Pink Paislee Sweetness papers (also from Happy Daze) which have those lovely floral corners that you can cut round and overlap. I thought I'd better add in some (very basic) embroidery as well!!

Thanks for looking!

It is a fabulous piece and now I know what to do with all those rings I have left over from the days before dogs and failing eyesight when I could embroider!

I have a few of those embroidery wooden circles laying around myself, thank you for the great idea. This project of yours turned out beautifully.

Hi Helen.
Love the use of the embroidery hoop and the bead decorsation round the outside. The stamp is gorgeous. I will have to go and have a look on the web!
Thanks for the inspiration.
