This is an update from the post I sent in on 26th April.  The background fabric is silk and I just added a few beads, used some silk thread to make a few french knots and have added some silk ribbon.  Still unsure how it will be finished....maybe a book?????

YEAH FOR SPRING!!!!!!!!!!

I LOVE DAFFODILS

I love this time of year when the garden suddenly bursts into life!  It creates a bit of work gardening, but the rewards are so worth it!!!!!!!!!!
PEONY ROSE

I thought I would share a few pics I just took - before the weather turns to crap this afternoon.  It's surposed to rain, and possibly snow to low levels.  I hope not as I am travelling in a couple of days and  have to drive over the Lindis Pass!! It has to be open as I am going to a fundraiser for embroidery in Queenstown!
Anyway back to Spring - I say "Bring On The Warm Weather" - we are sick of rain!  Isn't the new growth on roses so fresh and fun to watch grow!

 NEW GROWTH!!!

Postcards

A COUPLE MORE GREEK POSTCARDS: Below are some more examples of the postcards I taught at Wanaka last March.  They measure 4" by 6".  They are hand embroidered, embellished with beads and Swarovski crystals and are completed with a printed postcard backing.

Just a quick note

My thoughts are with all the people of Christchurch who are dealing with the aftermath of the big earthquake which hit last Saturday.


Anyway it's a cold, horrid day here, and I am off to art classes this afternoon, great day for playing with crayons.  I feel rather guilty doing art when there are those up the road who have lost their homes, businesses etc. 
 
On a brighter note I will hopefully get around to taking some pictures of the things I have been working  on and load them to this blog.

Check back soon if you have time,

Janine
