WIPW - Dill Pickle for Birthday

Work In Progress Wednesday.

Thank you so much for kind comments. I hope to have more time for blogging, and replying to comments soon. However, my free time is still very limited and my energy is running low.

There is no progress whatsoever on 
Crazy for Crazy
to report, 

but I had to make a 
Birthday Card

From the same book 
the lavender and chives designs came from 

I picked that of dill, the most popular herb in Sweden.


The French Knots took longer to stitch than I had estimated, but hopefully the card will reach its destination in time for the big day.

Tonight I will start digging out fabric for the next Crazy for Crazy block. Something autumnal I think...

  10. I keep trying to comment but for some reason they never go through... iPhone doesn't send proper comments? I will try with the iPad.

    ANYWAY... I was trying to say that I think I've seen your embroidery book in Mrs. Furui's bookshelf. She loves embroidery and has quite a few wall hangings of an herb series.

  11. I love these embroideries. What is the name of that book in English? It reminds me so much of the Danish Embroidery of the 1960's and 70's.
