I was given a small, silver brooch frame a few weeks ago and as the sun was shining I was inspired to stitch some little ice creams and lollies to fit.
They have been sewn using white sewing thread, half cross stitch and seed beads on 12hpi canvas. The background has been filled using continental stitch and the full six strands of embroidery thread. Have a sift through your stash, any threads or wools could be used for these little motifs. An embroidered border to the edge of a towel or pillow case could be jolly and I have recently use the Fab lolly to make a ‘FABulous’ birthday card for a good friend.
