As many of you know I have returned to one of my favorite needle arts, embroidery!  I often tell people, I may not be that good at it, but I’s sure does luvs it!  Come one now, laugh with me!  You know you want to!  But honestly speaking, I have always loved embroidery and thanks to some very precocious Austalian artists, I have re-discovered how much fun it can be to create and so relaxing to work on!  Yep, I am betting it lowers my blood pressure! 

Among these very talented and splendid artists in thread are the girls from Among the Gum Trees 🙂
