Poor Tess, she just can't seem to get it together. She hung around on the long arm for awhile, then sulked in the closet for the longest time. Maybe if she gets a new bonnet she'll come out for spring?

This background linen was also created with Procion dyes and Tsukineko inks. I machine embroidered it with extensive machine thread work, needle lace and a few bits of hand embroidery.

Spring Embroideries

Spring has sprung here! and in the spirit of the season, I've done a couple of little embroideries. I hand dyed linen and enhanced the background with a little Tsukineko ink, then machine embroidered it.

Just swam in from Australia!

Aren't these little guys just so adorable? They just arrived from the south! South Australia, that is! Judy knew I was working on a mermaid and thoughtfully sent me these little gems to add to my display. You may want to visit Judy's very creative blog

East Toronto Quilters' Guild

Last week I had the honour of presenting a trunk show to the East Toronto Quilters' Guild. What a great group of guys and gals, not to mention brave for adventuring out on such a snowy, wintry night. Thanks to Flo, Dolores and B.J. who helped me in and then helped me out. You might want to stop by and pay a visit to Dolores at and B.J. at And Flo? we'll just have to wait and see!
