Craft-on-the-go: an invitation from the Queen

I started this embroidery while I was away. A perfect on-the-go project as it only requires one colour! I found the Alice in Wonderland pattern of the Queen's fish footman presenting an invitation (well it's not really a pattern it's a drawing) when I spotted Martha's great version of this image in redwork on Flickr. I wanted to do my version in one colour as well and after briefly contemplating using green (green work?) I settled for black. Now I'm halfway I'm not sure whether I like it in black as much as in red. I guess it needs to be finished first to know for sure! Find more of Martha's redwork Alice embroideries and a link to the images here.

P.S. in the background you can see a tiny bit of my scrap vomit quilt top. I finally finished it yesterday after one and a half year! More about that later this week. :)


  1. More Alice craft Alice...seems very popular at the moment :) would love to see this in red too it's very cute :)

  2. It's lovely! oh I like it a lot!

  3. I love this in black.. actually more than the red! Definitely keep at it :)

  4. I think this looks great in black. Good call!
