My exhibition finished yesterday - I have mixed feelings. The show went really well but I will miss everyone at Mushroom Works - such a supportive group of lovely people who have become friends over the short period I have exhibited!

Surprisingly some of the exhibits that I expected to sell didn't and items that I didn't expect to sell were snapped up!! Most of my small embroidered pictures disappeared on Preview Night and as a result I have decided to make some more and hopefully manage to list them in my on-line shops. I usually frame them in box frames but I'm not sure how I would package them up for postage - any suggestions?!?!?!

This is one of a new series of pictures - I haven't given it a title yet (suggestions are most welcome) as it has just been hand sewn on to a piece of linen.

I hope you like it - more colourways are in the pipeline (or should I say awaiting embroidery on the dining room table)!!!

Oh, it's gorgeous. Perhaps you could call it 'At Sunrise'?

That is beautiful. I think it should be called the "Midnight Garden" or the "Secret Garden"
Packed in a box that looks like a miniature hat box.........?

Applique has been something I never did but I have done crewel embroidery.
