I have done a bit of this too, but we call it Huck Embroidery. The material with the thread floats (that you pick up with the coloured thread) is called huckaback here in Australia. Yours are both too nice to choose between the two.

Both are great but I love best the one on the left. When I was at school I remember doing this kind of hand embroidery! ***

Shirley, I like the design on the left - but the colors on the right - Hehehe! Is this done by hand or the embroidery machine?

Lovely designs. I like the left one best. It's been a long time since I saw this technique being used.
