Well as you can see from the last couple of posts I am drawing patterns for new embroideries. I haven't been able to put my mind to this for ages but that Japanese fabric gave me so many ideas. Then, I walk the dog twice a day and this takes me through the bush. I never actually 'saw' some of the things that have now claimed my attention. Amazing what one little thing can start.
So I am working on another small embroidery, this time of some gum leaves. I was taken by the fact that the colours were the same as some thread that I had in my thread box, this is a Stef Francis thread. The leaves are just gum leaves but the shapes and colours caught my attention. It may not work out, but I will give it a try.
My knitting is still here. It has been unpulled and re- knitted a number of times but now I am up to the sleeves. As the weather is on the turn I think this will be for next winter, so I have made it a little larger.
And I'm still working on the backing for the quilt. I have to use the left over fabric so it will be almost another quilt!
