This is a card I have made for my friend, Stephanie, who has not been well. She owns Destination Art in Arrowtown, in Central Otago, NZ, so if you are lucky enough to be in that neck of the woods, do call in and see her. I used some of the many Luigi Lolly Wrappers since I have an enormous pile of them.

I am also happy to announce that I am finally at the half way point in the twin needling of the velvet. To reward myself I stitched a row back the other way. I can see many more days of stitching at 20 rows a day. I have also started knitting some hand embroidery yarn for a littleoverlay around the waist of the skirt.

Today I had a read of Pokey Bolton's Blog on the Quilting Arts site. She has been tidying up her studio and it looks very pristine and she has a link to other people's studios and I can see without a doubt that mine looks dreadful. I decided to photograph it for her in an honest way - I am normally very organised and it is driving me nuts but just wait until I move home.


Leanne said... your blog and caught up...finally. Your card for Stephanie is so cute, I can't imagine you diminished the lolly wrappers a great deal. I hope it's not serious anyway, whatever was ailing her.
Sky Tower is a gorgeous cobalt blue tonite, the tip disappearing into a blue mist. 'sbeen raining heaps but the garden was needing it. Be good for my pathetic attempt at recreating the lavender fields of Tuscany or Furano...I have 75 plants...probably several thousand short?

A lovely card Dale, hope your friend is on the mend,
There must be something in the air, I have sorted my workroom this week, it looks very tidy, but unlived in, I will soon remedy that

Arrowtown is about 3 hours' drive from where i live. I haven't been to Stephanie's shop as my travels were curtailed by the broken ankle. I'll call in there for sure when I'm able to travel again.

I am sure that your beautiful, bright card will cheer up your friend, Stephanie, no end.

Cheers Helen
