Here's what I'm up to now :o).

Before I show you what I'm working on now ... this first piccy is for Peg - Hi Peg :o). I promised her I show the Tilda stitchery I did a while ago - so here it is :o). I've got another one of these the same that I'd like to stitch up as a gift. I'm sorry, it's not the best piccy, I tried to tart it up a bit, but it's taken with the flash so there's only so much I can do lol. It's stitched in a variegated 'threadworx' stranded cotton that went from lilacs to greens - gorgeous. I love threadworx threads, they're really lovely to work with - but I was recently told that it's a good idea to rinse them before using as they tend to run. Eeeek - Ididn't know that when I stitched this!!!. I just love Tilda stuff ;o)!!!

Now here's my CEO Sophie, we've (she's) just picked out the fabric for my next project. It's 'Decadent Victorian' by Moda and I just LOVE the rich colours in this range. I bought it ages ago off eBay because I simply couldn't resist!!! It's not one I've seen a lot of - I'm really pleased with how it's coming together so far. I'm making another "Dragonflight" and I want it to look completely different from the original ....... I think that's pretty certain LOL. Oh I just love these colours!!!Finally some not so stitchy news ... I'm typing up my blog posts a lot quicker now ... I've got a new keyboard and mouse!!! The last one was ok but a few of the keys were sticking - to be honest the darn thing is probably chokkas with threads and dust as it lives on my cutting table LOL. But this new one is a bit ergonomic - and it makes it very easy to type. Love it :o).
Talk soon ........

Love the stitchery! The variegated thread is just beautiful on it! Congrats on the keyboard too! When my keys stick I just bang the keyboard upside down on my desk and it usually works right again! LOL

Love your fabrics Joy...very pretty and also there is nothing like a new keyboard...I made a cover for mine so the dust etc wouldnt go into it.

I don't know what I'd do without my keyboard like that. I do transcription and I couldn't survive without it! I hope you love it.
