Needle Delights Rio, delights............

Hi everyone,

This week there is one less piece in the to-do heap. Yeh............
May I introduce.
Kathy Rees, Needle Delights
Rio, stitched with Threadworx overdyed silk
DH even made a good comment about this one. Being afraid of too many holes in the wall created by all the picture hangers the usual comment is "where is this one going". He even offered to hang this one as soon as it is framed. Maybe he will be just as mellow when the companion piece "Carnivale" is finished. LOL..............

The Guild sampler is selling well. We have sold 72 copies in a couple of months, which is good news for the Guild. Here's hoping for many more sales in the future.

As well as Rio I have been stitching a lovely piece by Thistle Threads called "An Empty Purse" which is a tiny 3 fold purse with a key holder.

Thistle Threads, An Empty Purse
stitched with Cascade Silks on 35 count Linen
This is now ready for the construction. The sides have a small gusset to enable a reasonable amount of room inside. This will be a challenge to finish but a very good friend has offered to help. Thank you Christine. Although pink is not my favourite colour it is poinsettias so the rose and dusty pink work on this piece. So far out of my purple/green comfort zone.

Happy stitching,bye for now, Carol

  1. Love your Rio piece, the black and white border really sets off the interior colors. Great stitching!
