Fun ~ Fun ~ Fun

It's supposed to be Spring BUT the days are not getting warmer or dryer or the skies less grey. The days might be getting longer and the daffodils and magnolias might be opening their pretty heads but it has not felt the least like Spring here in Auckland since it was supposed to have sprung on September 1st ~ still ~ it does mean that stitching of a cosy inside evening with wool and threads is still warm and fun, fun, fun ~

Sue Spargo's vases are starting to fill up with blooms and this project is just ever so much fun, fun, fun ~

Here's a peek at what my stitching fingers have been up to in the last little while ~

~ Two finished ~

~ Top row nearly done ~

I am doing my best to stick to a palette of blues, greens and golds ~ doing well so far ~ the trick has been to isolate my threads into their colour groups and put all the others in the spectrum out of site and out of mind ~ far too tempting to digress otherwise ~

~ Wool, velvet & cotton ~ makes you feel
like diving right on in to that stash ~

~ Blues, blews and more bloos ~

~ Fibre classification & seperation ~

I do hope that wherever you are in the world you are having fun, fun, fun  with your stitching too ~

~ May Your Days Be Filled With Salubrious Stitching ~


  1. You've got some colour 'Springing' into your home! Even if it is not outside! I look forward to seeing more as you progress.

  2. This is looking great! There is so much richness within that palette.

  3. Hi Rae, wow wow wow, this is really coming together. I havent got back to mine yet, as just trying to catch up on Bom, now up to March, but getting there. Love your vases , they look unreal. i too agree great way to work with colours in groups. You have done such a great job thus far and already so much, totally awesome,

  4. Looking good, looking forwrd to seeing the progress along the way. I live in Auckland and I think we are back to the middle of winter today, cold and wet, so over it.

  5. I love the pop of the greens in your embroidery. It works so well with the indigo vases. This work with Sue Spargo is certainly fun and addictive.

  6. Love your limited colour palette, right along mine. Your Sue tote is also lovely. I have to get back to my leaves and her Bird Dance BOM.

  7. I love your sewing so much! Nice blue colors make me feel like it is almost spring outside.


Thank you for taking the time out to look at my blog and to partake of my creative pursuits. Creating with textiles and fibres is a passion I embrace with abandon. Comments from those who understand this joy are food for the soul.
