    There is a known problem on the site, it is being fixed, hopefully soon.

    LOL, Helen! You are so gracious! I did some crewel & cross-stitch years ago, but this hand embroidery is a first for me and I think I am hooked!
    It turns out Sue Spargo's store is only about 45 min. from me in Ohio. I am anxious to go there this summer.

    I am finally getting around to posting my finished MIYO Embroidery, though I am still contemplating a border. I plan to have it framed, so not sure the border is necessary. Loved the process! (Be Patient...I think the photo size is a bit large.)

    Oh very slow - but I think this is nearly done - the art is knowing when to stop. I'm not quite sure how to finish this but have really enjoyed the project.

    A good idea to mix piecing with embroidery!

    I have finished my Make It Your Own Embroidery! I kept staring at it and wondered what it looked like… and finally decided it looked like a field of flowers. So I added the blue linen on the left, the 3 Queen Anne’s lace stems and flowers, plus the bird to further that idea. Also added the background grid quilting and linen binding. I’m going to use it as a small wallhanging.

    Helen W. I am following this years BOM and I have added it to my list. I love how you have made it you own. I hope to complete the 2014 BOM this year; I still have the borders to complete and plan on hand quilting it in sections.

    Sandy F, It is so fun to see other projects inspired from the concept of what a class is teaching.
    Your tree bark is fabulous and I love the ring of flowers. Sure glad this forum lets you zoom the photos to see the details. I have not started my Round The Garden. I have been doing my own
    version of this years BOM Garden Party Down Under. Have you been watching on the photos
    for this years BOM? I am sure it will make you want to put it on your list. I even tried the center
    block as hand embroidery. Not for the quilt I am making just to see what it would look like. It is all
    so fun. HelenW

    An update on my embroidery project - Wendy Williams Around The Garden (reduced about 35%). Rather that a new project using silk (which I don't have any) I decided to work on a pattern I already had using fabric and thread I already had but totally inspired to get started by Alex's Class. The circle around the garden if still a work in progress and the tree is close to being finished. Embroidery is so much more relaxing than piecing a quilt. While working on this, I also completed the final blocks of my 2014 A to Z for You and Me quilt.

    Or use a clear plastic table cover for a tabel cloth. The thin ones rip too easily, I ‘d get the dry erase , or wet erase markers to draw onto the plastic, Ready? Go! Lol!
