A place to share with others - my love of needlework and Crazy Quilting which my daughter introduced me into some time ago.

Yesterday I started on a project I've been promising myself to make for over a year. The first picture is the one in the Embroidery & Cross stitch mag. The next is the cloth that I have painted and started to sew the stems on. It looks darker than it really is and there is more unpainted area that wouldn't fit into the scanner. Some blue marker lines are showing. I couldn't manage the very large frame it was supposed to be attached to, so I have sectioned it with tacking and hope I can keep it flat. The stumpwork insects are what will take time to do and as I get them made, will blog them.
