Brazilian Embroidery UFO

The stitching is done!

I’m not the best embroiderer you ever saw, but I like it!

I still need to wash and block, and decide what to do.  Make a pillow?  Frame it?

I’m off on a little trip to get my Grandma fix.  The only projects I’ll have going are hugs…lots of ’em!

  4. What do you mean “not the best embroiderer you ever saw.” Are you crazy Laura? This is GORGEOUS! Beautifully executed stitches, wonderful use of color – an heirloom for sure! I have a book on Brazilian embroidery but have never done any – your work is inspiring.

  6. Laura,

  7. Was this from a kit or book? It is beautiful and I am looking for just such a project.

  8. Found a kit by searching “brazilian embroidery Dresden plate”. I like you color choices better than those illustrated with the kit. There is also another image online of the same pattern on black. Thanks so much for the inspiration!

  9. Laura, how did I miss this post? Your embroidery is BEYOND GORGEOUS!!!

    I would love to know how to do Brazillian embroidery but it would take away from trying to finish my whole cloth quilt before I die.

  15. Absolutely stunning embroidery. I love it, its so beautifully stitched. Well done.
