*OK Perhaps Just One More*.......

I think I mentioned a couple of posts ago how quite a few of the items I had made for my Website had walked out the door most to be given as birthday pressies to friends of Taska's which is why among other reasons I am so far behind in opening my site up....OK so I have now given myself a date (it will be the start of October) as I have also realised it is going to take me quite sometime to upload everything not to mention that fact that I honestly have no idea how to go about this, should be interesting huh, but I AM up for the challenge! plus I still feel that there isn't quite enough items yet to put on....
Years ago I made some cushions & a quilt when I first learnt how to Candlewick... I love this peaceful form of embroidery... anyway the cushions were given away, the quilt I still have but it really needs new fabric placed around all the squares, will keep you posted on that when I get it done. Anyway the other day I came across a square I hadn't used so have decided that *perhaps just one more* cushion for the site!.......



A sweet Butterfly made in a cream cotton onto a white cotton fabric, perhaps for a little girl....


Satin stitch used for the body & inside the wings.......

Cannot remember how many *French Knots* I made, quite a few believe me.....


At the four corners tiny flowers & leaves have been embroidered, hours & hours of work that I just soooooo enjoyed doing, perhaps should do some more......
Thanks for popping over to visit oh & sorry about the last photo it really isn't all that clear, when I have made the cushion up will take some piccies to show you....
Have a great day.....

Years ago I took a book from the library, intending to learn this beautiful art. Turned out I'm all thumbs. But yours is gorgeous.

Lyn, you make the most gorgeous things, you know I am a huge fan of yours!! Well done with the website. Yes they are a lot of work and I actually let mine close down as I didnt have time to do that and ebay but I think if I get back to my hand made items I would open it again. Look forward to visiting yours!
