Needlework Projects

Just  a little gift for a friends birthday!
She has the most fairytale house and garden, so I thought she might like this.
The wood frame  I painted twice with two colors and then sanded lightly
to get that aged look.  She is a fantastic quilter so I thought she would like my silk ribbon
embroidery. Going to her place is such a peaceful and
enjoyable time.

Sweet Sharon:
Thanks for visiting today. When you're at Brynwood, you're with a dog lover...never ever worry about "going on" about your pet! I still have an antique pincushion that our big golden male, Duff chewed up. Never bothered a single thing in his life, but for some reason, he had to have my antique pincushion! I think of him fondly every time I look at it.
