This part of my blog is all about the things I collect or the things I make myself. I love so many things, I paint and draw and want to learn oils and pastels. I knit and crochet but want to learn tatting. I embroider and can turn my hand to most things given a chance. So much still to learn and do. I live in hope of some day reading all my books, learning all I want to learn and now I am learning to blog. You will often find my original poems, poor as they are I offer them here. I also appreciate other people art and will feature things I find that I have enjoyed. That includes pictures of fairies and fantasy or maybe just anything beautiful.
I try to use my own photo's as much as possible, sometimes I borrow from the web. If I inadvertently use your picture without giving credit, please do let me know and I will either credit or remove it, I hope you will do the same with mine.
If you wish to leave comments on my blog you can do that by joining google if you do not have a blog yourself, please comment if you can I appreciate that.

None of this work is my own. These are all things I have collected over the years. The hand work is beautiful and are finished with either lace, crochet or tatting. Photobucket


This I believe is called stump work? The stitch is done over a thread to pad it out. The edging is crochet


This table cloth is full of details. The ladies face has lips so small and dainty and her eyes too. Her dress and bouquet are French knots and stump work. Detail is shown on a part of her dress

Look at the detail here.
