    If I could embroider anything it would probably be a whole collection of different classic carousels and carousel horses/creatures around the bottom of a circular skirt in pastel and metallic glittery threads. I would wear something like that everyday :) Oh I really want to do that now...!

  30. i would embroider a wolverine in her natural environment. the colouration of a wolverine coat can make translating same realistically (as opposed to cartoonish) difficult. i would put in just enough background so she isn't floating, but the background would still need to look almost 2 dimensional while the wolverine would look 3 dimensional (if that makes sense).

  72. Being a PhD student in Marine Science, and an all around ocean geek, it would have to be something related to the ocean. I would really love to embroider a long wall hanging that would feature embroidered ocean creatures with shallow species at the top, and deep sea species at the bottom. Of course I would have to use glow in the dark thread since many of my favorite sea creatures are bioluminescent.

  107. I immediately thought of egyptian goddesses going down the nile on a golden boat with lush wildlife and greenery on the banks of the river. Actually.. that would work quite well on the hem of a skirt too (misss Katie's idea, not mine :) ) as the scenenry could change as it goes round the edge.
    Similarly I have always liked hieroglyphic images and can see them working well as they're already an outline.

It's just one of those little things in our life that I love so much and wouldn't change for anything!
