Woodland Picnic Part 2

May 24, 2011


A few weeks ago I wrote here about an embroidery I was working on featuring a gathering of woodland friends attending a picnic birthday lunch.  My honey and I collaborated with the design before I stitched it onto one of my linen pixie capes for a little friend's birthday present.

It took me almost a month to make (we have a newborn in the house!) and I ran out of time to photograph the finished result before wrapping it.  Luckily her lovely Mum sent me these pics yesterday.

With her fondness for apples, the tree became an apple tree (with a face of course) and it wouldn't be special without her finding her name on it somewhere too. The birthday girl is such a cutie and I love that she will get lots of wear from this sweet cape.

Happy second birthday F.
