Great to see you back! I stole your idea of hugs to make a very secular one for a youngperson I know who was facing urgent cancer surgery. It was appreciated. Through the surgery now, but still waiting on the pathology results to find out what further treatment might be needed.

Hi Lydia - very glad Brian is through the worst now. I dare say it will be a long recovery - he'll need that hug.

Hi Lydia.  Thanks for the friend invite.  Love your cute quirky dolls by the way!  You were asking about the teabags project.  I'm writing a tutorial at the moment as I have been experimenting with recycled teabags (started over a year ago and then put it to one side) and have come up with a few techniques that work for me with them and also a few different projects.

The section you ask about is in fact rewoven!  I didn't like the way the pulled threads worked, so I cut out the entire area and used a very fine embroidery thread to stitch around and across the open area, and liked it better.  This little section had a lot of experimenting!

Lydia, thank you for making time to comment on my work. I like the way you experiment with your stitches and fibres. I am now trying to explore sumptuous embroidery on my own and after completing the piece will make it into a cell-phone pouch. That T-shirt that you embroidered is a very neat idea.

Hi Lydia - I'm flattered by your friend request. Many thanks!
