Now that my interest in embroidery is alive again, I decided to take photos of these bags.
I made them between 1999 and 2004. Then I stopped stitching for a long time.
As I mentioned before, my creative journey started in Embroidery.

When I saw these pebbles by Elspeth McLean I was instantly in love.
I was lucky enough to be able to buy them since I saw all her art on her shop go as she was uploading.
They are the perfect companion to Pedro the Chameleon.

I'm still on embroidery mode.
It's funny, I feel like I've been unfaithful to my journals, my watercolors and to painting... I can't help it but I am hooked again.
I laugh because many times people who knew me as an embroiderer would always ask me "are you ever going to embroider again? I didn't know for sure but didn't think it would happen.
...and here I am!
I think I'm enjoying it so much because I do it with freedom. The freedom I get from not knowing what I'm going to do or what I'm going to make. I don't follow any pattern or a plan.
I just think of colors and color combination, I start stitching and it grows, like this mandala.
For those of you who are more onto journaling I will post some pages next week and will probably be painting a couple of thing I have in mind.
PS. Look at my new coral butterflies bucket from Cozy Memories.

Last week I started making these felted pebbles following a wonderful tutorial I fund on Lisa Jordan's blog. She makes the most beautiful embroidered felted pebbles and I wanted to give it a try. She explains the whole process step-by-step with great photos. After the felting is done and the pebbles are completely dry you do the embroidery.
I think I've never mentioned that my creative journey in arts and crafts started with embroidery.
I hadn't done it for a long time and a couple of weeks ago I had this urge to stitch again. So for my 10 day vacation I took what I needed and this pebbles are the result.
I almost forgot! I worked on this mandala too.
