Our Sharing Garden

This last Sunday workshop Lise brought many smiles and stories as well as the classic The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett.
The book-cover spoke volumes of the stitch and inspired her to purchase it. I am so glad she did and shared it with me.

It's a story I have yet to read and is now on my reading list due to the creativity of Jillian Tamaki. Visiting her website was a wonderful.
She is a very inspiring artist. Her needlework median is uplifting and reveals her natural story telling journeys. She has done a few more book covers. All very special.


I have been working on a series of trees for the seasons.  My Spring and Winter are finished. Here is where I am with my Summer tree.
I am happy with it's progress. Feeling good that it will be completed before the heat begins.


Lise and I took the challenge to master the Bullion Knot in this last workshop.  I am glad to know that when two determined
heads are put together got to master the technique ourselves. I was inspired to re write the steps in my words to hopefully bring
more clarity and ease. Leave a comment if these steps work for you.


It's a totally beautiful stitch. One that I will use more frequently.
