 I am looking forward to becoming more active with my stitching, as I enter a new phase of my life...called retirement!  I am so ready to be on my own time clock and to pursue personal interests that have taken a back seat to my career.  There are so many things I want to learn and try.

Hello Carol-Anne,

Thank you for your lovely comment on my Sensu. It means a lot coming from a fellow Japanese embroiderer. I have followed your work for some years now and think it is all beautiful.

I haven't tried Japanese beading yet but you have inspired me and I plan to give it a go soon.

Just saw your Chinese flower by Trish Burr. It is gorgeous! Needle painting is next on my list to learn. Does Trish Burr's long and short stitch projects help when you do the JE camellias or is it the other way around? Thanks, Helen from JEPlus blog.

Just seen your embroidery.  It is lovely.  I take it, it is a cushon - smart.  I also have been finishing my grandson's embroidery (3 years).  I am now due to do one for his brother.  I am booked in for next March.  I must get on with my loving couple though

Hi Carol Ann.  You must be preparing to leave for your bead class in Atlanta.  Have a wonderful visit to JEC and I am looking forward to seeing your progress on the next project.

Hi Carol-Anne  Thanks for your kind comments, I really struggled with the Camellias but now that they are finished I feel they didn't turn out so bad after all!  Yes, I shall be in Bournemouth in March, see you there.  Val
