2010 Year of Bio-Diversity










Hearing about this on a TV programme from the Chelsea Flower Show inspired me to stitch my own garden of Bio Diversity!
I used three stitches from TAST 2007 re-visited, on linen coloured with fabric crayons,
23 Wheatear Stitch,
24 French Knots,
25 Long & Short stitch.

Many thanks all for such lovely comments about my previous 'Veldt' picture.

At last, after many painful months waiting for a hip replacement, delayed by other investigations and treatments,
tomorrow is hip-op day.
I'm sure it will be very successful and though I'll probably be having another later, and my spine could be better, I'll be a new woman in a few days time!
I'm looking forward to getting out and about and maybe a bit of gardening.
Stitching has kept me going for months - I'll probably do less as I widen my horizons!

Very, very pretty. Wishing you a speedy recovery and hope you will soon be delighting us with more of your charming stitched vignettes.

The stitchery is lovely. I hope your operation and recovery go smoothly. Hopefully there will still be lots of time left for more stitches!

Hi Konnie,

Have been thinking of you and hope your operation went well, and you are back soon with your lovely work.

Are you recovering at home yet, or still in hospital.

Best wishes and looking forward to having you back.

Best wishes
