I got in! Had to do it at work though!






Hello all, just to start I would like to say something has gone scrambly on my home PC and I am having to do this post at school. But I have been a busy bee while away and have made few things. I am currently beading like crazy the cenral panel for the water hanging, but until finished it looks pooy! So have not photographed that!
Above you will find a padfolio I have made for my sister Vicky's birthday on friday, I won't say how old she is as she is coming up to the scary one with an 0 on the end! I used the lovely hand dyed fabric that Gillian sent me again and I have to say she has encouraged me to get dying too, it's so much nicer to work with the way the colours have turned out in the fabric, like on the back of the padfolio. You will also find my TAST for last week which is CROSS stitch. I thought I would love the simplicity of this stitch and in many ways I do, but I don't like my smaple very much, it is a bit blocky and no flow I think.
Lastly you will see my daffodil that was suposed to have been posted last Thursday for St.David's day, but blogger wouldn't let me in! A belated happy St.David's day to all, especially Mag's of Digital Gran as her gransone Charlie David was born on this day! Also to the girls at Textile challenges, my online group, thanks for indulging me with your welsh challenge submissions, some lovely work was produced. The daffs postcard will be one of the prizes winging it's way to some of the girls. Thanks for bearing with me , and no I haven't dropped off the edge of the world. Also just quickly to all, I think the last month has been a pooy one in my life and seemingly in a good fewof my freinds lives, online and off, and so I wanted to say, spring is coming, everything will seem easier when the sun is out and the daffs are blooming! Love Carol T

I love the flowers and one of my favourite colour combinations. I also like the way you are presenting your TAST samples.
