It has been a good weekend...a visit from some dear friends who had moved away...and some time to stitch.
The weather has turned very spring like and my garden is waking up. I love seeing the blossoms and leaf buds...a nice time of year.
And some time to sew...there is so much started and needing completion it was hard to know what to pick up first. After some inspiration from Kate while I was in Singapore, I have succumbed to the temptation of The Circle Game from amitie...loving this! hand piecing is so relaxing...and it is laying flat!
I stitched this little cross stitch pear together and added a real pear stem...
and worked on an ottoman I bought at the Sydney craft show...I had fun with the machine construction!
