It may be a violation, but I'm desperate. What book did you find it in? Maybe just the diagram itself wouldn't be too much of a sin. Or if the book is still in print and not too expensive, I might buy it.
your email was good for me: yes, you must learn and practice stumpwork; woman have not finished to work and take pleasure in the same time.
We have never finished a day. and night are too short.......isnot it?
I don't sure that what I mean is clear in american language...............

Aaaahhhh. thanks for your appreciation Jen. Your embroidery work is beautiful. You must have a lot of patience. I like things to "grow" quickly. Your little Christmas tree embroidered on to card is a great idea...so simple, yet stunnung. I love it.
I just noticed you live in Canton, MI. I grew up in Livonia, and my brother still lives there. I've been looking through your photos; my, you certainly are a multi-talented lady! Hardanger is about all I do... I love to work in colour, too; I use Caron Watercolours a lot, though I rarely use it for the whole piece; just some of the satin stitching as an accent. I see you love to travel; let me know if you ever decide to come to Australia!
