Let the sun shine in!

It was a very cold day today but we still had some nice sun this afternoon. I took a few shots of the piece I am working on right now that I am beginning to think would make a great flap for a messenger type bag. Its bold and bright and I'm really liking how the colors are looking together.

I also took a shot of my two new pieces I just dyed. I like them both. The red really saved the piece that was grey and rose colored. It has some real possibilites now. Before it just looked sad and grey.
I would like to do some more dyeing this weekend if I find the time and I also have to get started on my lil sis's christmas present. I am planning on making her some window glass art in littlest pet shop designs. She is absolutely crazy about these little animals and what better thing to decorate her windows with then her latest passion?

  2. Hi Diane,

    LOVE the embroidery... You are a very talented woman!! I love the little fairy shoes, too... And, that mint chocolate totally reminds me of Ande's mints-- what are they? --thin mints? YUM!!! You have the right idea!! It's pretty cold in France right now... Enjoy the hot cocoa -- it looks sooo good!!
    Take care, Leesa

  3. These paisleys are beautiful. what wonderful embroidery and paisley is my favourite shape.
    I have been enjoying reading through your blog. A white Christmas looks like a lot of fun... cold though.
    So pleased you are enjoying your new life in France and that you are finding time to sit and stitch for yourself.

    Best wishes for 2009.
