The above photo of globe thistles growing in my yard inspired me to make this:
Speaking of quilting... this scrappy fabric quilt is nearing completion. I'm busy hand stitching the back of the binding and once that's completed and the thread ends from machine quilting have been taken care of, I will post photos of the finished quilt.
Next up is my current putterings with embroidery floss. I've been playing around with ideas to incorporate bits of embroidery into other projects like little pillows, bags and even needlecases. At this stage I'm just stitching up whatever suits my fancy. Later I will have to decide on fabrics etc. These bits of stitchery are relaxing to work on in the evenings and I'm enjoying using my recently thrifted score of embroidery floss.
