Enchanting Embellisher

Well I went to Kates Sewing Centre and bought the embellisher.
When I was young I was a pianist, viola player and singer, all had to be practiced daily,( I came from a musical family so that was the "norm").
However when I had the viola exam I practiced piano and when singing exams loomed I practiced the viola...you understand?
Well ,with the exhibition a very short time ahead...what am I doing but "playing" with a new toy.
These are my first efforts, they are not finished, I want to do more shadowing and a little stitching but I so love doing it, just like painting.

It is possible that I will add more today as the adventure continues.

In the meantime here is my Day picture from yesterday I went to visit Miriam and Ruby.

What a great Mum she is, she calmly goes to trouble to make life brighter for her children and for her friends.

I am so lucky at my age to have these little people around and through the wonders of blogging I had a lovely message from another beaut Mum, my neice in Canberra.

Having not had children myself I just adore having them around now, I think being a "Granny", albeit surrogate ,is the best thing.

Looks like you are already having a great time with that embellisher.

I finally found a copy of Painting with Stitches by Sue Dove. Thank you so much for introducing me to her book, love her stitcheries and am going to have a play soon.
