the beauty from nature and the wonderful display of flowers that springtime provides
the bunch of roses from my local fruit shop that i have on my windowsill displayed in little old fruit juice bottles give me such delight, i love them !
my friend and now (personal knitter) came to visit for dinner recently and wore one of her latest and wonderfully created jacket
its michelle from the quilted tortoise, she also sews, but the knitting has taken over recently ! there are things she wants to knit, but knows she won't wear, so that's where i come in, lucky me ! and she's using some of the many balls of wool i've purchased over the years !
beth from our saturday embroidery class with 'mrs sew & so' has nearly completed this mix of applique and embroidery
back to the beautiful flowers' these arrived for me from tom, a huge arrangement of lovely spring flowers
after the tulips died i separated them all and the roses were just spectacular, 20 beautiful yellow roses and also these orchids
then last weekend the house was full of MSG inspiration with Marg Sampson George paying another visit for a workshop and here are some of the images of the work being done
all different versions of 'going green gradually'
with light behind it barb's looks like a stained glass window
and this subtle little version of 'bombay blooms'
but then a softer look, beautiful roses again
trish has done lots of work on her sheet version, love the colours
and tanja has a large space to fill
little by little they all get done ! just think of all the little stitches being made all along the east coast of australia influenced by MSG !!!!!
i started making some new pieced blocks to add to one of my msg projects as the next border
and back to some embroidery, jan's lovely cushion finished ! jan hasn't seen it yet, so you are very lucky, i love it ! done in class with 'mrs sew & so' !!
i tried to finish this post so it would appear on the first of the month, but i notice the clock has ticked over past midnight again, so it's off to bed for me now, enjoy !
