One of the few things my sister and I have in common, apart from the same parents, vegetarianism and the belief that my niece is the best child in the entire world, is that our favourite band is The Doors. I made this little set of embroideries for her birthday, using a line from her favourite Doors song:
I did them totally freehand and although they're a wee bit wonky, I think this adds to the homemade look rather than detracts from their appearance. I used chain stitch which I hadn't done before but I'm now hooked on the way it looks. My stitches could be a bit neater and I definitely improved a lot towards the end, but as a first attempt, I'm pretty pleased.
Now, shall we have a gratuitous picture of Jim Morrison to round off this mini-post?
