Some Magic Moments

In the very first creative embroidery class I attended when I learnt to stitch a flower like this (not this actual one but I do have it tucked away somewhere) ..........



During that first year of C&G when I learnt how to space dye threads (there's not much space dyeing showing here but these were to hand and there could well be something from that very week some years ago lurking in this box somewhere) .........

And today, learning how to use the camera in macro mode to take these lovely clear pictures ..........


My husband says that he did explain it to me when we first got the camera (nearly two years ago) ........... better late than never! The true colours are actually deeper than shown but they are the right colours!

Thanks for the html tip Gina - something else I will have to investigate!

This embroidery work is very lovely. I am especially liking that motif that resembles a sun. I'd love to know what stitches are in it.

How nice to get your comment on my blog and the link to yours in return! I enjoy seeing your lovely embroidery and reading your thoughts on the projects. So much fun to share creativity with people I don't even know!
