...thanks to still feeling lousy I have had extended sick leave coupled with a trip to the doc's and an x-ray... He suspects I could have patches of pneumonia I will find out tomorrow but for the moment I am feeling a little average... Anyway, enough of my sad story... The upside is that today I felt up to doing a little stitching...
this would be my favorite seam so far - I felt I had achieved exactly what I had set out to do even though the pink novelty thread was a late inclusion
|Cretan stitch, lazy daisy with bead, couched novelty thread|
|butterfly trimming, hot pink bead silver jewellery findings|
|variety of glass flower and leaf shaped beads -|
|Outline stitch around painted leaf shape, pink flower shapes with hot pink bead sewn over chevron stitch|
Below are my selections for March - I have some ideas - some generated from this book. Brian Haggard creates some exciting examples of what can be done. Every time I browse through the pages I find some thing new. His style really appeals to me and I would like to try some of his larger motifs - but I guess only time will tell if it happens...
|March CQ choices.|
