I have been embroidering for as long as I can remember and have always had a fascination with clothing and textiles

Just when you thought I had fallen off the face of the earth, I appear!
bearing eyecandy! woo....ok, ok. so It's not that exciting.
I have been busy!
a little bit here and a little bit there, I have mostly been out in the garden this summer.
anyway I have finished another BJP piece
as you probably know if you read the blog regularly (or irregularly as the posts go).
I got married this past december and we took our honeymoon in Hawaii.
this is my may bead journal piece I call her dancing with the volcano.
she is the constant lava flow of the
pu'u'o'o that has been erupting on big island for over 30 years!
she has reshaped the Island several times and removed whole towns from the map but she always adds a little more than she takes.
the last time we came to big island she was running out to sea, this time she is "adding land" inland so we couldn't go see her with out a 7 mile there day hike or a chopper so we opted for exploring the rest of the island Wipao valley is stunning!
so we start with a spray in the bottom not quite corner with feather stitches, rose buds and mokuba ribbon flowers
then we go up to the upper right hand for the spiderweb and some beaded lace trim and green french knot berries
blue Sre flowers to bring out the blue design in the bottom fabric and yellow trumpet flower vine to hang the spiderweb from and a purple and green spider to dangle off the end all drips down the right side of the block
on the left side I ran a bunch of crimson SRE daisies on a field of lace and ribbon
then across the bottom I ran a wave of pearl daisies with green sprays topped off with green and purple beads
I tried to balance my block with Barb and Shelly's blocks and added a little more lace
I hope you like it!
I see you!
Eating buttercups under that bush!
sorry, Elizabeth! I didn't see him till it was too late !
