Frolic Through the Garden


Today is Every Inchie Monday and the word is frolic. I decided that I would most like to frolic in a garden so I used my machine embroidery stitches and embroidered the yellow flowers, then I added the purplish red line which is the line of the frolicker and some green leaves. The leaves and frolicking line are done by hand. Once again I started with a larger piece of fabric and cut it down to size. To see more inchies go to Every Inchie Monday.


Another thing I want to share is this funny picture I found while poking through some antique shops when we were up in northern Wisconsin. Written on the back of the photo is "Louise ready for a masquerade." I think it would be fun to print this on some fabric and do some embroidery on it.

Really sweet stitching that captures frolic so well. I knew the stitching was the frolic path before I read your explanation. Super great frolic inchie.
And that photo you found....what a great one!!!

Susan, I think your embroidered frolic Inchie is so artistic! That could be a little tiny painting. Also love the idea of embroidering on the old photo. I've got to get myself some of those printable fabric sheets--so perfect for that!

Love the inchie! I'm behind already! Will catch up as soon as all these quilt shows are over.
Your photo is whimsical for sure. It would look great in a mixed media piece or printed out on a fabric piece. Great find!

Your Frolic Inchie is pretty amazing! Stitching something that small would blind me! LOL! Great job! :-)
