Thank you Doreen for the lovely comment. Since I am just beginning to work with this medium it is great to have such skilled eyes on my progress. I am just so happy once that little needle is doing it's work:) I have however put a generous hole in my middle finger. So and I can truly say the last project came with great pains. I think I might need to learn more about the ground fabric used in needlepainting.
Thank you for your nice comments on the completion of my TAST-2012 sampler! It has been a busy few weeks for me with lots of teaching and a knitting and stitching show. This week will see a lot of catching up and some creation of new ideas for future courses and workshops.
Doreen, thank you so much for taking the time to look at my Seasonal Poems Japanese Phase 9 piece, and for leaving such a nice comment. It is always nice to receive positive comments from sister embroiderers who understand the discipline and skill it takes to do this type of hand work. Your quilts are absolutely fabulous, and I can see that you are quite creative with thread and fabric.
