Shirlee, The beetles are absolutely gorgeous. I wouldn't mind an infestation of those in my house!

Thank you for your kind words. I have learnt so much since I began learning Japanese Embroidery and I love the designs and techniques. I am looking forward to seeing some of your goldwork and particularly your tambour work. What a wonderful experience Paris must have been, not to mention the lessons :)

Yes, the picture you saw was an ornament I designed modeled after the bracelet from the Ecole Lesage book -- Frankly, it's my favorite book...

I dream of the day when I can go live in Paris for a year and take all of their courses! I'm so jealous that you were able to go. I'm wondering if you know of any teachers in the U.S.?

Please feel free to visit my Flickr site any my blog -- Plays with Needles (if you click on these titles, it will take you directly there.)

Anything I can do to help you with the computer, just give me a holler. So glad you're here,

Hi Shirlee! I have been a HUGE fan of yours and you didn't even know it! Ever since Maureen would publish her newsletters...I was always looking for the tips from you or pictures of your work.

I saw your quilt in the $100,000 magazine but there were no close ups (unfortunately) which left me a bit sad. I've been searching for you "online" thinking you might have a Flickr account or something....When Maureen appeared her, I was excited and asked about you! Come on over to my page and check out my blog and my flickr glad you're here! And I can't wait to see what you've been up to all these years!
