Preparation for Glebe Craft and Artisan Fair

I am happy to say that my hands are functional again after some physio, acupuncture, ultrasound and exercise (not to mention warm/cold/warm water baths.   Still some twinges of pain and stiffness so I am being very careful not to overdo the hand stitching but I was able to complete several ribbon embroidered bookmarks and other pieces last week.

I also framed some of my 4 x 6 landscapes, this one in a double frame.  Most of my embroideries are framed without glass but with this machine stitched one I left the glass on.  But it is set back in a double mat so the texture still shows through.  Of course, the customer can choose to have the glass removed.

I also completed another notebook cover and have 3 more in progress.

Last week was my birthday so I treated myself to roses.  Aren't they gorgeous!!
Now back to work!
