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.
