It's strawberry time in NZ. Hot summer days and delicious strawberries. Both in my dinner and in my needlework! And just for the record I prefer the edible variety. The sheer quantity of Queen Stitches in the stitching strawberries is a major test of patience. Today has actually been rather too hot and humid and to cap it all we are promised a "tropical night"!!
Here is a more complete snapshot - in faith I have already stitched the date and I am on track to make this true.
I work for a large Government Department. Outside work I enjoy embroidery and stitch mainly traditional pieces of counted work always in Linen and generally with DMC or silks. My other love is reading and I visit the local library nearly every week. My elderly mother lives with me. She is increasingly deaf and quite blind and in this blog is known affectionately as the DBEM.
