English Carpet

This is my latest in my rotation. I just finished all the flowers and have started the blue back ground. I've still got a border and back stitching. This is English Carpet by Heart's Content and it's done on silk gauze, 40 count.

Past week's work

This is the project I've been working on this past week. I've made some good progress. I should be able to finish the top half after the next rotation.

Herbal Convent Garden

This project has taken forever but, it's almost done. This is what I have been working on for the last six days. I didn't get as much done as I thought I would but, I will try harder next time it comes up in my rotation.

Brassia Rex Orchid

Now, I realize that this isn't stitching but.....I couldn't resist. I grow orchids and this beauty went nuts this spring. It's a Brassia Rex and this year it put out over a dozen spikes. The spikes are about 18" long and you can see in the smaller picture how big and tightly packed the blossoms are. It really loves my bay window for a winter vacation.
