These are some things I have been working on lately. An embroidered pillowcase and some embroidered old photos. The photographs would make excellent gift tags, cards, or just really awesome wall art framed. I haven't had the chance to put some in the shop yet - but they will be coming soon. 
But first I wanted to have a little giveaway, one to say thank you! It's been awhile since I had one of those. 

So here is the nitty gritty:
The Winner will get the standard pillowcase embroidered in the picture above and one of the embroidered photos pictured as well.
All you have to do to enter is leave a comment telling me which photos you like the most and what you would do with it?
I will pick a winner randomly from the comments on August 23rd. The giveaway is open  closed to everyone worldwide. Goodluck!!!

I like the picture with the lady sitting on the steps. I would like to use it on a box with decoupage.

I like the photo with the flowers embroidered as a circle around the head of the lady. I'd like to send it to my friend with the caption "Friends are our Angels on earth!" Looks like a floral halo. Beautiful embroidered pillowcase! Would love to have it, too!! Mary

Hi Amanda- what beautiful creations! I really love the pattern you embroidered for the pillow case.
My favorite photo is the sepia woman in profile that you did a simple outline around- very elegant. :)
I think she would work well on the cover of a journal . . . something to jot daydreams in.

Mary Mac said...

Just the old timey feel of the women sitting on the front porch with the daisy stitching. It would be beautiful in a frame alone

Heidi said...

Gorgeous work! I'm loving the woman with the flower in her hair- she looks like she needs a thought bubble with a sassy phrase...

Thanks for the generous giveaway!

I love the one with the girl with the belt of flowers. I'd make it into a birthday card for a friend.

I love the older lady on the steps, you added a lovely touch with your embroidery

Micaela said...

Amanda, you never cease to amaze me with your talent. I just love love love these! My favorite (though it was hard to pick just one) is the pretty lady with a floral belt. Though it would be hard to part with, I love the idea of using them as a gift tag for a special care package to a friend.

What a generous giveaway and I can't wait to see these in the shop. Thanks for the chance my friend! XOXO

Adore the pillowcase. Would use the photos as greeting cards.

Phoenix Peacock said...

sweet Micaela directed me here. She knows me well! I love love the the old grandma with the flowers, but I think I'd have to go for the girl pointing to her cheek. My husband calls that "snotty cheek" and I'm known to just turn my cheek up to him when he walks by in a nonverbal request for a kiss.

I love the photo on the chalk board. I would frame it and hang it in our dinning room.

I adore the one with the devilsd horns and the halo! Reminds me of my husband and I. It would look perfect in our living room!

Samantha Oh said...

I love the angel and devil photo, I would frame it in gold and put it in my apartment

April Smalley said...

I love the grannies with the little white daisies on her dress. I would pin it on a quilt I have hanging on my wall to add to the vintage style, altered art look I have going.....nice work!!!

Ming Suller said...

I love the photo of the lady with flowers around her waist. I want to have it framed and use it as a statement piece for my study area. :)

Lucia said...

I love the photo of the lady with the flowers around her waist. I would process the picture in a painting. I'm really excited about it! :)

Max said...

hi. i'm new here and so taken by your embroideries on photos (i'm trying to teach myself embroidery. it's such a clever idea and so beautifully done. i have to say there is not one i don't like. i too like the lady who looks like she's in tennis whites, with a flowery belt. i'd pin it up on my inspiration wall as a prompt to emroider one each of the photo portraits of my two children i've been taking, and put them up on my blog then send them to their grandmother in england who i'm sure would faint with love them!

Jessica said...
