There were some great items that members made. I love this arm chair caddy. What a great way to use some old doilies? And how about this from an old rectangle doily? Folded in half and the then into thirds,... Continue reading

I think I have some of my photos back again. Here are those Shashiko mats that I finished. I used an insulated wadding so that they would withstand high heat. I also made them a bit bigger than the original... Continue reading

They are even better when you see them in the wild. Today a pair flew over the water next to the ferry. I just couldn’t get the camera up quick enough in my phone.

It is simple and beautiful and there is love in every stitch. The rib isn’t as painful as it was but I still can’t lie on it yet.

I often go to Vinnies and get quite sad seeing all the handwork that is just given away. There is a lot of love in those pieces. It is wonderful to see what Angela has done with hers.

I hope someone remembers me with my work in something as wonderful as this.

Yet another try with these images. They have come out sideways but that is better than nothing. I have actually got a bit further on this one but this is the only image I can get up to the blog.... Continue reading

I have done quiet a bit of work but both of my computers are playing up. I have spent all day trying to recover my photos. They are all there but I can't get to them. Looks like these little... Continue reading

This section has taken quite a bit of thought. The diagonal stitching that I had first thought of doing just didn't look right. I wanted something to mirror the original classic design and finally came up with a box pattern.... Continue reading

I have always loved music and studied piano, oboe and voice at the con for most of my childhood and teenage years. I was a professional musician for a couple of years before my marriage so to lose my enthusiasm has been a real concern to me. I’m so glad to have got it back.
