This is the gold one plus an array of toning perle cottons from my collection - inspiring , don't you think?
While I am doing some stitching there is nothing original in what my work this year. I really miss the challenge of last year's TIF. I tried to produce a series of embroideries using the skills I had learnt in Sharon's Sumptuous Surfaces class. Not all 12 satisfied me but nonetheless I gained so much from the year's work. Maybe the time has come to start another one with a theme of my own choice.
