Leslie David Howan was my Father In Law, he was 85 years old and leaves behind a family who cared greatly for him.
Husband, Father, Father In Law, Grandfather and Great Grandfather.....we will remember
The flower my daughter is named after 'Tiger Lily', a granddaughter

I have made some progress on the Essamplaire casket. I am currently working on the butterfly wings. They are detached buttonhole with venetian picot on the wing tips. Edging closer to finishing this bit.
I have completed the surface embroidery for the May Your Hands set and we are ready for construction. My goal is to construct all the smaller pieces and complete Lesson #5 before 1st February when the last lesson is posted for the final finishing. Can't believe I have caught up to this point as I was way late starting and finishing all of that sawtooth border...Yipee!!!
Apologies for the not so clear last photo. I am trying to figure out how to resize in blogger and it's real random hit and miss for sizing the same within a post. aaarrrggghhh
