One more time.......




















Often when I have a design I like I want to try it in
different techniques.. The stumpwork bluebird I did for Cobi is a good example. I had previously used that same design on a block for Ati in Norway and I beaded it.... This is from a block I did for Kerry in a beaded RR. I really liked the design and how it came out but I wondered what it would look embroidered.... or in goldwork

As I am finishing up Arlene's lorikeet I am thinking ahead to Leslie's Art Nouveau block and thinking I want to use this dragonfly design...

At the first of the year when I was setting goals I wanted to do something with goldwork techniques...not real gold... fool's gold... all that cheap gold cording, thread and braids that they sell by the bin before Christmas... I have a big bunch of it...

So when I ran across this goldwork flower on Mary Corbet's site I immediately fell in love with it and could see it on this flower by the dragonfly...... The gold cord is couched with red thread.... how cool is that...? I don't know if I will do the whole design in gold ..although that would be fabulous I think....but the flower for sure... I will HAVE to work this on a hoop so will add extensions to Leslie's block to make it fit a hoop...

Oh, I love how your brain works; wish I could get inside it for just one day! LOL. Yes, it will be FAB with the dragonfly. Big hugs to you and Morris (and Ron and Molly too!) Cathy
