I am excited to receive a comment from one of the masters of embroidery, Trish Burr, in one of my posts.
Thanks, Trish! Your words are very encouraging.
I recently bought Trish Burr's another book "Redoute's Finest Flowers in Embroidery," which has nice flower projects. I have planned to do some of these projects on hankies and bags.
I hope 2011 has started well for all of you. This new year, I have plans to do a lot of projects, but with a resolution not to take up more than three projects at a same time and not to increase my count of unfinished projects. You will see a lot of activities coming forth on my blog---book giveaways, book reviews, tutorials, and much more.
In the photos below you will see the completed long-and-short Chinese lotus embroidery. I had strongly decided to take up another project only after completing this. I have also decided to take a short break from long-and-short embroidery and would like to try my hands on other forms of embroidery. Therefore I will take up a new project in a day or two.
Before signing off, I like to wish (though it is belated) you all "A Happy New Year!"
