another small blank book

I did the ginkgo leaf book.  Now I am thinking thistle.

Speaking of thistles, my mother, Julia Evatt, did the most beautiful little beaded thistle recently.  Unfortunately, it did not make it into my greedy little hands so I cannot show it to you.  But, I do have a picture of her beading handiwork, a bracelet she made for a swap on a beading cruise she took last month.

The little faces are all her designs.  I think she rightly impressed her fellow beaders!

If, like me,  you have a sporadic desire to embroider, there is a great blog here that demonstrates  more stitches than I knew existed.

Ever hear of the “twisted fly stitch”?

    These little books are wonderful. I love blank books. Must make some more… but what to then fill them with? Nothing seems ‘worthy.’ And your mother’s work is delightful… now I see where you get ‘it’ from!

    More great work – from you and mom.

    The books are lovely! And your mom’s bracelets are special also!
