Needlework with a twist

After my little brothers wedding I realised that many of the older generations were not around to produce some of the lovely samplers that I have, to celebrate my wedding. So I have set about that task myself. My first attempt was a mixed stitch sampler, which was ok but a little coarse. So I then went on to use Dan and Carries wedding invite ( seen beside the sampler, a little unusual in it's self) to inspire a needle point piece. I only put on their names and the date of their marriage. An unusual reminder, to hang some where discreet like the wardrobe!

This is FANTASTIC!!! funnily enough I was thinking about funky embroidery after seeing trailer for 'where the wild things are' - This is amazing though, can't wait to see it in the flesh!
