One thing leads to another, – embroidery.

Many of you know that my Mum passed away a few weeks ago…. ever the artist. she looked at the thread painting I do on the machine…..

"That's Cheating" she would say…. and yes, I guess I agree with her if I compare my work to hers….!!!

This is a piece she finished not too long ago, it's single thread embroidery.


I've already placed this small piece in my casual dining room….

Today I got this picture out. It's quite large. I bought it in Haiti a few years ago, and it goes well with Mums embroidery. A visit to the local framer has given me some ideas to add texture to this framed painting and it will go well with the embroidery… in fact the room needs a re-vamp and I will work around this little piece.

Then a few Mexican dishes….!!!! wooow…. delicious

    looking at all those wonderful colours on this dull, freezing cold day makes me feel happier, thinking of the sun.

    It’s not quite as warm as I would like it this morning… but the day will be super as it progresses… so we are thinking of you all in the snow.
