Embroidered Panel
I did this yesterday to use some leftovers from the January TIF with the addition of some turquoise/blue fabrics. It has a felt base and is mostly free embroidered except for the motifs done on my embroidery machine & some satin stitch. Hope the colour is OK as I still can't see red on my monitor.
Lovely rain today and it's much cooler but not for long apparently.
Corryna asked how I did the swirls: the 2 neat ones are done on my embroidery machine from a digitised design (not mine) using a variegated thread then cut out and appliqued on. The other ones are done freehand.

How did you make the swirls? I also like them. No, I must say: I like the whole piece!
