Creative Embroidery a Playgound of stitch and colour.






A work in progress.  First begun at the Wanaka Embroidery School.  Now the end is in sight.
What will I do with this?  I'm tempted to frame it.
What do you suggest.? 
You will find my post on the beginning of this project at the  Wanaka Embroidery School
It has been resting for a while.

Enjoy!

Fabric flowers - made with love.

 
 


Flowers (and other bits) that I have made over time.  Using all sorts of fabric, buttons and trims, lace and so on.  I now have a collection which I call  "fascination flowers.'  Oh yes, and they are made with love. 
I don't know about you, but my favourites are the soft lacey ones in the middle photo.  They were coloured with tea bags to get the tea coloured effect obviously!


Will be back soon,
Our weather is absolutely beautiful right now.  Day after day.
Should be out in the garden amongst the real flowers.

Cheers
Joan.

Te Kiteroa - historic building in Waimate.

We visited this historic home on the outskirts of Waimate recently.   We enjoyed the  ambience of the home in a rural setting of a vineyard.
The coloured glass windows of the entrance doorways frame the beautiful countryside.



A garden surrounds the buildings.


The  rural view from the front doors reveals a fantastic vista through to Waiamate.

Te Kiteroa , a lovely place to stay I would think.

Life has thrown some challenges of late but i am looking forward to getting back to my stitching and fabrics etc. 
After all it is food for my soul, and thats what I'm craving for.

Cheers,
Joan.
