Sharing My Tapestries

 I started these in the 1980's and got them framed quite a few years later.
They hang in our living room.
They remind me of the diversity  and beauty of the Australian flora.

Finally A Finish

Madame Wentworth by West Wind Cross Stitch Designs.

I dashed out today in the cold to get a colour I needed to finish Madame's hair.  Now she is finished  and we can admire her 1830's look

One-Day Wonder Challenge on 123 Forum

I completed a bookmark on Easter Saturday with a Spring theme, even though we are in Autumn here in the Southern Hemisphere.
Nice to have a finish as all I have are many WIP's at the moment!
The pattern is by Marie Barber.
