Some New Threads


I still have an urge to keep on embroidering the seams of the rose quilt.

But I think I sill soon get bored with this because there isn't a lot of thought involved.  So, I have dug out a design I was working on some time ago.  I was going to make this into a class but I think I will just make it into a book cover when it is finished.  It is a floral Dragonfly
and although I drew the design and trialed the stitches I might change all that.

Actually I have sewn quite a bit of this one.

Such lovely work!


It looks as though it is well in progress, in fact.

Yes I have done more than I at firstĀ  thought.
