I was all ready to take some more pictures of finished projects, but my digital camera refuses to co-operate.This after I had it along to the guild meeting this afternoon and went right past the store. So it will mean an extra trip into town. So instead a close-up of part of a wallhanging that I made last year. A few years ago I got introduced to orchids on one of my trips to California. Here at home it was right in the middle of the winter and there orchids bloomed outside. For me it was incredible. Once home I received one as a gift and right now it is blooming for the third time. I'm up to 3 by now, since that is all the room I have in the "perfect" window, but they give me a lot of pleasure. The flowers are hand appliqued with some added embroidery. There were a lot of fiddly little pieces and I was glad when they were done. Stil trying out my machine quilting, but it is still not good enough to show here. Maybe next week I will have something to show, with pictures.
