My Creative Space: chickens are clever.

I have always been impressed by the way chooks make the yolks so perfectly round. Every. Single. Time.  
I have wanted to do another little embroidery in a small hoop for ages but have felt quite uninspired. But the other day, when I was cooking an egg, I was watching it and was inspired to stitch one. It has been too long since I picked up the hoop and I was reminded how much I love it. How much I missed it.


Just a little something for the kitchen. To make you smile. Did it make you smile?
I have plans for two more.... can you guess what?

  4. Yes, you made me smile! Nature is amazing in its shapes isn't it? I was marvelling at honeycomb the other day - how those bees do it I don't know, but I'm always impressed!

  10. Absolutely beautiful stitches! I love really textural embroidery like this. Chewy embroidery, I like to call it. Actually I just made it up, but it looks chewy and I love it!

  17. I think eggsalctly the same thing. Every time I crack an egg I'm awe struck. Everyday they do it. Amazing.
    Love your embroidery - maybe to complete the set you'll do soft boiled and poached?
