NOW FOR THE CATS EYE


The embroidered, beaded cat's head is almost finished, just the eye to do now and stick on the diamontes.


I'm not looking forward to the eye as it could look good or odd, not good with eyes.
I might procrastinate a bit over this, lol


I've got my bits and pieces out, a few diamontes and tiny flowers to fill in the holes I have left and am trying out the glue on the smaller frame to see if they hold okay.

Once this is done I intend to have a go at felting the background like I did with the willow tree.

Thanks for all the nice comments on the Bijou Garden, I'd love a larger one of course but have to make the most of what I've got.

Nice and sunny at the moment here but rain forcast for later.
The damp and rainy days are not good for Tom making it harder for him to breath so roll on the warmer sunny days, fingers crossed.

  1. That's really pretty... Have a look on you tube at needle felted eyes. It might give you a little help when doing your beaded one... Or you could simply felt it.

  5. Chuffin heck Briony, your work just keeps getting better and better. I have lots of little bits and pieces and thinking I might do a small art piece next, but it will be no where near as good as yours. You really are the expert at this.

  7. Briony.....how good are you:). I really like this new piece.
    Maybe you could start taking students....teaching them the art of embroidery, the skills you have certainly warrant it. If I wasn't so far away I'd sign up on the spot!

  12. It's beautiful. I know what you mean about eyes though, they can totally change the look you're going for. It's the same when making soft toys, you can end up making them look quite sinister just by placing the eyes in the wrong place.

  14. I NEVER cease to be amazed at your incredible talent!!! This is just stunning. You somehow know exactly what colors and beads will go perfectly in each place. This is just beyond any needlework that I have ever seen, all of yours are.

  15. The cat is absolutely gorgeous! Wow! I can definitely imagine that eyes are difficult. Even just drawing them can be tricky if you don't get them just right.

  16. That is really neat, Briony. Working with small threads and beads is difficult, and you do it so well. Also, I find that "eyes" in almost every form of art are hard to get right.

    2. No, I'm not so 'techy' I'm afraid!

  22. Similar to Cathy's remark way up there ^^ I was thinking recently of what kind of class I might want to take and "embroidery like Briony's" was what came to mind! lol Actually I'm not sure anyone can teach talent and they certainly can't teach experience - we just have to dive in and make mistakes and try to learn. And hope we have a bit of talent. You are certainly gifted; your work is wonderful.

  23. My husband left me last year after 25 years of marriage (he turned 50). It has been the most difficult year of my life, but full of lessons about myself and what life and marriage are all about. I am passionate about marriage and i didn't give up on my husband. resides in USA, I entered online in search of advice on how i can amend my marriage while i was at work. I saw so many positive reviews and nice feed back about how a Doctor called Robinson.buckler@yahoo.com has been wonderful with his work. I gave a shot to make contact with him via his Email and he assured me that my marriage will be peaceful and i believed in his words. 16 hours after he finished work, my husband came back home pleading and now, we are living peacefully again. Get in contact with him if you need any help.
