From The Cabbage Rose

I am so very proud of myself!  This is all the fabric I bought while  on holiday.  No more!  It's something to be proud of.  I also picked up some finger pads and a couple of shades of pretty perle cotton.

May In My Garden

These beautiful pictures were taken before we left on holiday.  The flowers are all in my garden, and they're beautiful.  The garden's even more in full bloom now.

Closing The Square

Another bit of stitching done on this, showing how little I've gotten done on holiday.  It's creeping along, and the bottom scrolls are almost done.

From The French Knot

Unsurprisingly, I went shopping while in the US.  In Fort Worth, I found this lovely Texas heart at The French Knot and had to have it....

Something Neat

We went to the last weekend of Scarborough Faire while in Texas, and I came across this lady selling feather accessories.  I fell in love with this one.  It's got rare earth magnets to hold it onto things and also a leather pocket to slide a headband into. 

One Big Butterfly

Last week, I showed you Candji's block in progress.  The bottom picture is after my work; the top is before.  The biggest thing I did was to cover over one of the large butterflies with embroidery.  Other things include a caterpiller, some ladybug ribbon, and a couple of premade butterflies from Uruguay.  I hope Candji likes the additions.
