This blog should be called "The Adventures of a Fabric Junkie!". I am passionate about fabric, threads, colours and textures. I can record my crazy quilting, sane quilting, embroidery and everything else that I consider important in my life.

Doing the Happy Dance !! Japanese Koi finished!!
After yet another four hour stint stitching, the Stumpwork Japanese Koi are finished. They are not perfect but I've had enough of them, I want to move on with other seams and pieces for the Hearts and Hands for Sendai block. I have managed to shut up that whinging, whining Mrs Perfect who lives inside of me and wants everything to be just so. Well, I have a message for her, the Koi are going to stay just the way they are because I want to get on with pond plants, Bamboo, Fans and everything else Japanese. I set myself a challenge to do the Koi but I had no idea just how long Stumpwork takes.........ages!!!! Not to worry, I can move on now.
