Sorry about the bad photos!!

Here is Lily – took a photo with my phone at work:

I think she is progressing nicely πŸ˜€

And here is the Fire Goddess:

There is a very bright, bright orange in Fire Goddess that I didn’t think was right, but now I have stitched it does actually work.


I was playing with the smart framer website

run by a company called FrameCo and came up with this as a possibility for framing her…

What do you think?

This was started as people initially polled for this one!

Better photos and a few other things…

So I finally got some better photos off my camera – yesterdays photos were taken with my phone.

I think these are better photos πŸ˜€


These colours are truer to life I think…


A close up of progress on New World:

And my floss toss for Winter Water Garden
The fabric is pale grey, and I now have most of the metallics:


I have also made quite a bit of progress on Lily. She is at work, so I don’t have photos. but I think she is now over half done.

Now a poll:

Happy Dance…

Yes, it was Water Goddess that I finished. Here she is – I will have better photos later, but my camera went flat!!!
