Once more - the postcard

The postcard - with its frame -

I risk to bore you

I wanted to make a border with pulled stitches. I made them for the first time and saw that

it is not at all difficult. My next piece will have more - I am planning.....

It is looking like that - transfer paper on my "studio work horse" and a few colour ways

The green one will be my choice.

And now the surprise -



Our friendly neighbour came to bring us strawberries,

huges ones, the farmer in our village can't sell them, they are too large,

neverthelelss they taste well - I froze them for jam at a later time.

Now isn't that wonderful!




  1. Not bored! Lovely to see your beautiful work:-)

  2. No i am not bored either i could look at your work all day. I do like the border it just finishes the piece nicely. The strawberries are huge and look so tasty. They will make yummy jam.

  3. i love those pulled stitches. i must give that a try...and those strawberries. they look delicious. hard to believe he can't sell them.

  4. your postcard is a real beauty, the 4 sided stitch is a favourite of mine which I use a lot with hardanger work.Your next project looks interesting, can see you are throughly enjoying Sharon`s class Strawberries look delicious

  5. You learn so much in Sharon's classes, and become brave and try unknown stitches. Your pulled work frame is nice, a good way to enclose the picture. I am sure the next piece will be stunning, too.
