I really, really enjoyed stitching Tanja Berlin's Goldwork Lion. This was my first attempt at goldwork embroidery and I am very pleased with the result. Daughter #2 who had never asked for a piece of anything I've stitched asked if she could have it so I'm doubly happy!



Here is a close-up view of the gold and copper purl purls. They certainly were neat to work with.

And my very messy back view that I have yet to stitch down :)



Forget-Me-Nots are one of my very favourite flowers and they are all in bloom right now and so I had to share a picture with you.



A hungry muskrat paid a call and I was able to get a picture of him as he breakfasted on willow leaves.



Happy Stitching everyone,
Jeannette Luther
