Good Morning everyone. I hope you all had a lovely Easter. Ours was spent repairing plumbing on a 40 year old house arrgghh.....but there were redeeming moments like this... very spoiled!!! Note SANDY'S lovely bag...FULL to the brim with eggs! I don't remember being that good!
My "Tuesday's Treasure" today is the first piece of 'stitchery' I did called "Gardening Angel" I saw the work of "Kindred Spirits" in the form of their gorgeous book "Gatherings" and was smitten. I still have their book and I have done many pieces from their designs from this book. This first stitchery was one of them. I still have it in my entry and I love it still. I also love that it reminds me how far I have come along this stitching road. I also remember the fun I had collecting the little lace motifs and buttons and choosing the fabrics from Ruth Stonely's lovely store.
I also remember the horrified look of my new stitching friends when they looked inside my sewing tin and saw the tangled mess of embroidery threads.....I didn't know you could buy little cards to wind your thread onto. Some were quickly provided and I was tidied up post haste.....I have also never lived that down either!
MELODY'S lovely blog to see who's treasuring what today.
Blessings Michelle xx
