Embroidered Berets

I can honestly say I have been embroidering for Britain of late and I have thoroughly enjoyed every stitch.
I started embroidering flowers on grey Berets, but lately have included birds just peeking out of the flowers...and added black Berets to the collection too.
I call them my 'Dare to Wear' Berets.

Robins and Blackbirds peeking out.

Right, off to start another.
I think there are a couple available here, if you fancy.
Thank you for your lovely comments and for stopping by.

I am absolutely thrilled to bits to now offer this Hoop Embroidery Kit.
All included in the kit, except for scissors, to embroider this little Bunny, sitting in the flowers... surrounded by teeny Bees.

a year or so ago, I was invited to contribute a few images and a Q & A for the book, pictured above.
I didn't really give this much thought at the time, but when the book was published and I received a copy, I was beyond thrilled. 
A French publication, but sincerely hoping the book will be published in English soon.  
The book takes a look at contemporary embroidery.
Absolutely packed with a fabulous collection of contemporary textiles artists' work, unusual and alternative.   To be part of this wonderful book is a huge honour.

 Available here and AmazonUK.   I looked at Amazon USA but not available at the moment.  I'm sure it will be widely available though, if published in English.

thank you so much for the wonderful welcome back to blogging.  Thank you each and everyone for your kind comments, all very much appreciated.

So, here is the result of many hours of stitching over the last few days....French style Berets.   One of our daughters suggested embellishing Berets, which I thought was such a good idea.
Each has a hand embroidered spray of flowers and teeny Bees.  Available over in my Etsy shop.

Well, that's all for today, 

Thanks so much for stopping by. X

Hens Teeth Art starts blogging again!

it's been a long, long time since I blogged last and I wondered if anyone out there in this big old blogging world of ours, can see this post?   If so, do please say 'hello', just so I know I'm not talking to myself.   Not that there is anything wrong with talking to myself, I do just that, all of the time.

Anyway, after much persuasion from a dear friend, lettice I thought I ought to restart keeping a record of what's stitchery business is going on at Hen's Teeth Heights.

So for now, I will leave you with these pics of current 'makes' and wish you well.
