Handspun Embroidery

I’ve had these miniature embroidery frames for over a year, and every so often I bring them out out and see if I can be inspired.

This morning I had the idea of using them as a kind of record for my handspun yarn.

I did a woven rose for three of my more recent spinning projects. And it was heaps of fun. I love how they look, and it’s a good visual of the handspun yarn.

Putting the little frames together was way to fiddly and annoying though, and as you can see they look pretty rough.

I still reckon it’s quite a good idea. Maybe I just need a different execution, or more patience 😁
