Herbal Garden Framed

I had several gals ask me to post a picture of this piece when it was framed. So I just got it back from my framer and I tried to get a good picture of it. I think it came out pretty good. The mat is a suede and the frame is a tarnished silver.This picture however doesn't do it justice by any means. I am so happy with how it came out, I really don't think it will take me as long to finish the other two.

Next to Last Finished

I have one more of these ornaments to finish. These are from last year's hardanger ornament from Nordic Needle.I decided they looked better apart so I didn't sew them together. I will start the last one today and hopefully I will be finished by the end of the week. One less WIP YEA!!!!

Herbal Convent Garden - Chatelaine FINISHED

It's been over 10 years since I started this piece and I now have it done. This piece is a really beauty and the hundreds of beads was really worth it. It took me over a week alone to put on all the beads. Below are the pictures of a corner urn, one of the gates (and these are all different), and the middle. The very middle is a cute little flower over one.These pictures look a bit yellow, actually the material is ecru. I am so glad it is done, now it's off to the framers.

Hope for Spring

I have a bay window facing the south and every winter my flowers are fooled into thinking it's spring. They put on a beautiful display of color. The plants that are blooming are three orchids,a christmas cactus and a clivia. Even though the temp. is -14 and the windchill is -30 I can still dream of spring.

This was one of Nordic Needle's hardanger projects last year. I got it finished last night. I have joined the two for this year. And I still have two Christmas ornies from last year to finish. Smokin needles continue.

First Finish of 2013

This is my first finish of 2013. This ornament is part of Nordic Needle's Hardanger Christmas Ornament Club. I now have two left in the club. I have also redone my WIP list on the right hand side. Some of these I haven't started yet, but I will be shortly. I have two hardanger clubs from Nordic Needle that I intend on keeping up with. I have two clubs from last year I need to finish. I will be starting Chaterlain's Mystery Sampler 16 in January, continuing to keep up with ATW 80 by Papillion Creations and other projects that are almost done. I will be posting all of these projects and their progress as the year goes by. I now belong to several groups that will help me do all of this. Stand by for my smokin needle.
