Herbs To Hang


Although I haven't yet done the herbs hanging, the wording has been finished. I've also done the potting stand where all the pots are sitting on shelves. There's the odd bead to go here and there but I'll put those on last along with the charms once my sampler is completely finished.

The Potting Shed - 8 March 2009

Thank you all so much for your wonderful comments about my Strawberry Emery. It was quick to do and I really love it! I'm wanting to get some more pieces of different coloured wool and make a few others. Wool is such a beautiful fabric to stitch with - soft and flexible. I didn't age mine, but that is another technique you could use.

I've also been given another award. Debs has been so kind to send one my way. Thanks Debs! I really just do my blog as a reference to look back on, and to share with others what I'm stitching. Hoping that a few people may be interested in what I have to show along the way. It allows me to indulge in the activities I like - stitching and photography - and it's a great means to be a little creative. It's certainly a way to encourage me to do as much stitching as I can. As I've mentioned before, I think all stitching blogs are wonderful in their own way, so I am not listing individual ones, plus I think most people have already been given this award by now. The award is much appreciated Debs, and through all of our blogs different types of friendships are created.
