Flamingo Pond Hand Embroidery Pattern

My new hand embroidery pattern Flamingo Pond is now available.   Lovely bright pink birds.  Well, depending on what they eat.  The colors of their feathers come from the pigments found  in the algae and other critters they eat.

Lavender Poppy Hand Embroidery Pattern

My new pattern Lavender Poppy is now available in my Etsy shop!   It was a nice needlework show with a good variety of patterns.  Thank you to everyone who stopped by and those who entered my door prize contest! Hope to see you April 1-3 for the next one! 

Poppy Embroidery

I'm working on a new floral hand embroidery design of poppies and lavender for the Needlework Show next month February 1-3!  A fun botanical project, but I think I'd avoid this kind of fabric next time.  The stripes have some kind of coating on them and it makes them a little difficult to stitch through.  Nice white fabrics with printed patterning are best, I think.   I'll post the finished project when the show begins and hopefully you can stop by!
