Bless our house and its heart so savage - two more custom versions

The first custom 'bless our house' embroidery I did was a big hit, and soon after the recipient left a glowing review on Etsy (it made my day, honestly!) I received two messages asking if I could create a similar piece for them. The first was for a wedding - the brief was that it should have wedding bells, the couples' names, and that the wedding was for two Scottish people, so I jumped at the chance to make a Scottish themed embroidery! I used a slightly more desaturated green for the vines, to complement the silver and purple of the thistles. I have never embroidered thistles before, and it took a few tries to figure out the best method, but I am happy with the result! The second was for a woman who said she preferred cooler colours, so I ended up using purple for the roses rather than the pink I used in the original piece. I've been using so much purple lately, which is funny because I am not really a big fan of purple in general! Maybe more custom orders will help me change my mind...maybe. What do you think of these two new floral embroideries?

  1. These embroidered sayings on the clothes are looking quite unique and awesome. Your art work and handicraft skills are just phenomenon. I just to want to put out this collection.
