I would like to welcome my new followers, thanks for taking time to see what I have been up to. I certainly enjoy seeing what everyone else is doing.
I had a very silly accident during the week and broke a small bone in my foot. It is enough to be sore and annoying and uncomfortable to walk (very slowly), but not enough to need plaster or to stay at home. It will take about 6 weeks to completely fix itself.
I did not catch up with Parts 11 and 12 of Baroque before the end of the month but I will attempt to be up to date at the end of June. Just waiting for part 13. This is the centre 'border' which is quite long and divides the lower gardens into 2 sides. I have changed it a bit from the original to make the brown and purple 'twist' around each other. I wanted a bit more symmetry in this centre piece.
I also worked on Chinese garden and have quite a bit of the temple building done. Just lots of backstitching to do on the temple. I love all the specialty stitches, but especially the rice stitches for the temple roof.
Lastly, here is my up to date progress shot for 4 calling birds. Still LOTS of beads and backstitching but almost all the crosses done. Would like to get this one finished this week if I can.
Wishing everyone a lovely June. As always happy stitching
