Succulant Chicken

Lovely succulant chicken with a yogurt sauce and seasonal vegetables. My son, who made this delicious meal, is in his final year of school and will be going away to study next year. Besides missing his company, we are really going to miss his cooking!

A cushion made for a friend...I hope she likes it! I used a vintage pattern but thicker cotton and crochet hook to update it a bit.

embroidered bird cushion again!

Still working on the cushion cover, which has now become more of a collage than patchwork.

embroidered bird cushion

Work in progress.......decided to take a break from beading for the moment and make up some cushion covers. I have piles of fabric and need to use it. I also enjoy doing the embroidery but HATE making up the cushions. No matter how many times I measure, I never seem to be able to get them square, or straight, for that matter! Can anyone give me some tips on how to get the wrong side neatly finished off without an overlocker?

Autumn Beads

My latest necklace! This is also a 'cellini spiral', creating a spiral ropey sort of effect. I have tried to do a closeup shotso that you can see the detail of the beadwork.
