Cyndi, over at Bee Tree Designs, got me hooked on twilling, and now I have hooked my friends.
I made some punch cards on cardboard from a gift box and we practiced the stitch on that until we had it just right. Its so much easier to see it when you do the stitch in "giant" thread. From there we moved on to a little blue bird practice piece that I did not get a picture of for some reason, and by next month I expect they will all have their table runners or blocks well in process.
Willowberry Designs . The package arrived yesterday and what a great coming-home-from-a-long-day-at-work surprise. Doesn't my thimble look cozy in its new thimble keeper?
And I close with a picture of my newest flower bed endeavor. My father would be so pleased at my gardening attempts and that my flowers are actually still alive. I was never much good at growing things, other than weeds, but so far so good. (knock, knock, knock on wood) I think my Daddy must be watching over them for me.
Have a good day everyone, and thanks for stopping by,
