Christmas Kits

There is still time to indulge in some wonderful Christmas stitching.  My kits have everything included for a worry free experience.  There's no running around looking for supplies - just get straight in and start stitching.

Beguiling Puffs

I've been making my hand dyed silk velvet puffs for so many years now but I just can't get over them.  I think it is the texture and the way the colours change when they are gathered up. You can add sooo many other gorgeous threads and embellishments to them that they sing.   I've enjoyed making them so much that I haven't been able to put my needle down.  It is the beginning of a needle case and at the rate I'm going it should be finished soon. Now to work on a magic interior!

Bees of Paris

Fat Bubble bees are some of my favourite things. This bee was taken in the Luxembourg Gardens in Paris and the bee hives are part of the rejuvenated bee enclosure.  Where we live on the Gold Coast I only see the small bees and the tiny native bee so the lovely fat bees are a treat.  See my Pinterest pages for more Bees and Ladybugs.
