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”?
