Last week I made this embroidered picture for my sister-in-law's birthday but I couldn't blog about it until it arrived. On the way over to Sweden the glass broke and the bird fell off but we'll fix that! The quote is, I think, from an old Greta Garbo movie (Ninotchka - 1939) and is one of her favourites.
I bought the frame in the local Chinese supermarket (yes, it's plastic) and painted it cream white, the bird is from the same store, I found the paper in the paper store around the corner and the embroidery is made on dark brown wool with a Danish cotton thread.
