Spring Flowers.

Posted on | November 22, 2016 | 11 Comments

The flowers I have referred to are not the real kind. They are embroidered.

This is the embroidery I have been working on for ages. It is finally completed.


I wanted a photo before it is framed. It is quite tricky once there is glass in between.

All the flowers are embroidered using one strand of thread, hence the reason for the time it has taken.

I plan to work on a few simple stitcheries for a while now, just for a break.

I also managed to complete the last of this collection of Christmas decorations – the green trees ( and a stray thrown in).


Our strawberries are still growing madly and I have made three batches of jam in a week. I may as well make the most of it as they will soon slow down.

Thankfully we are still getting rain to keep the garden well watered.

Have a great week.

Cheers, Karen
