These are some of the embroideries I am doing on some pale sage linen that I will combine with blue and green and maybe tan linen to make a quilt. There will be flowers and insects, and I can hardly wait to start putting it together. Still about 20 squares to embroider. I love figuring out where to put each part of the embroideries....there are five elements to most of the blocks, though the bugs only have 2-3 for most. It looks very old fashioned. Until you look up close! Then you see the steampunk sort of look. I think I will love it!

A wonderful friend has made me a real treasure! This is a tuffet, with the button looking like a comet, and a comets tail flaring out in blue and red, spraying out behind in wild exaltation. Oh I have a fine friend, a very fine friend indeed. Cosby and Strider agree, and Pippin soon joined them. All six of my kitties have used it as their throne over the last few days, though I mostly keep it covered by a towel.
