How Does Your Garden Grow

This is the Floss Toss for the new Papillon Creations Mystery for 2008 called "How Does Your Garden Grow".

The fabric is Silkweaver's "Poltergeist" 32ct Lugana and the threads are HDF, from left to right, Victorian Leaf, Verdigris, Nectarine, Blue Violet, Seafoam & Rose Blush.

Marquoir Story - Part 1

This is Part 1 of Marquoir Story by Isabelle Vautier of Passion Broderie.

I had started this once before about 5 years ago and was using a really bright red, green and yellow on a 28ct white evenweave. I just recently decided to pull it out and work on it some more and just didn't really care for it with the bright colors. So I decided to start it over.

This is done on Silkweaver's "Everglade" 32ct Lugana using DMC colors 520, 729 & 3726. I really wanted a more traditional look to this and love the colors that I'm using.

Here is my first finish for 2008: Rainbow Gallery's "A is for Acorn". I used an off white 28ct evenweave fabric and silks from Hand-Dyed-Fibers, Vikki Clayton.

I plan on doing the whole alphabet series and make them into a quilt for my new granddaughter, Zoey.

Well, it's another year!! HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

I've made my first completion for the new year and have also made my first start for the new year!!

I plan on setting up a 10/25/50 Challenge for this year, but need to get my list together. I know what my first challenge will be though, that's getting my stash organized. :)

Will post more later, when I actually get something done and get started on my organizing.
