Eye Eye!

Well one eye anyway. I've finished page 5 of Dragonfly. I've taken a week off work this week to be with the children and they've dissapeared with their friends all day, leaving me with the time to stitch - what a luxury. No don't remind me about all the chores I should have been doing!

I'm really impressed with how the eye has turned out. It's got so much depth to it, I couldn't see it while I was stitching but as soon as I stepped back from her Wow. And that's not blowing my own trumpet it's all credit to the charters at HAED and, of course, the original artist, Selina Fenech.


As you can see I've been messing about with my blog and I really don't know what has happened. Stay with me, hopefully I'll get it sorted some time!

Edit - think I've done it - let that be a lesson to me, it's taken me about 3 hours to sort it out!

Dragonfly update

I've been working hard on Dragonfly and I've now finished page 4, that's the first row of pages complete. As you can see I've also made a good start of page five, this has one of her eyes on so she will soon be looking back at me.

Home Sweet Home

I've put down Dragonfly long enough to stitch this piece for my sister who moved into her new home last week. I've made it up into a hanger but forgot to take a picture of it finished.

I've still been very busy with Dragonfly and have actually finished page 4 and started page five (the second row of pages - so exciting). I'll try and get a pic in the next few days and update you.
