Recently I was cleaning out my old craft room (which is still a nightmare, but I'm working on it). As I was sorting through some bins I found a bunch of embroidery hoops I had never used. So, since I have been greatly admiring the trending "hoop art" that has been all over Etsy, I decided to try some of my own.
I am not really that experienced with embroidery. My mom is the master, but she has taught me a few things about it over the years, enough at least for me to dive into a project on my own, so I decided for my first project I would do silhouettes of my two favorite fictional characters of all time: Mr. Thornton and Margaret Hale.
I used the likenesses of Richard Armitage and Daniela Denby Ashe for the portraits. They will forever be Thornton and Margaret to me. :)
Of course I had to pick one of our "Helston roses" for the shoot. I don't know exactly what type of rose they are but they are just like the one he picks for her in the movie, so I like to call them Helston roses. :)
I couldn't resist making a little collage with N&S screencaps. What do you think?
This set is now available in the shop. I am working on another one right now, which I will hopefully finish tonight and be able to post pictures soon! Not telling you who the couple is though; it's a surprise. :)
