Canvas Work

As I was sitting at my computer this afternoon writing some notes I realised I was being watched by this Crimson Rosella! It was very interested in what I was doing inside!

Here is a sneak peek at the canvas work needle roll we will be doing next week at Stitching on the Lake in Canberra! I have really stepped outside my comfort zone with some very bright colours (and with a little gold thread) but I'm happy with the result!

And this is a matching scissor keeper humbug which we are doing in a couple of weeks at our Needlework Group and also at a class I am teaching further south at Bodalla Embroiderers! The humbug has some beads and gold thread to make it even brighter and I have attached it to my favourite pair of embroidery scissors!


  1. They both look fantastic Fiona. Well done.
