Featured Hottie Number 12

Hottie Challenge

It's such a glorious sunny morning here in Melbourne - perfect to show off a bit of Hottie Art!

This stunning piece is by Jennie from A Little Vintage. I don't know whether you can tell from the photo, but it's all been created by thread sketching. There's probably millions of teeny tiny little stitches.

She's also used my favourite colour combo to create those gorgeous flowers.

I've wanted to try thread sketching for the longest time..... so I'm sure you can guess what's on my list for a lazy Sunday?

Thanks so much Jennie!

That's beautiful! I recoginsed the face as being one of Jennie's straight away. I have loved watching her creativity and sewing ability spread into different areas during the time I've followed her blog.
