Newest Project

Adapted from a Trish Burr design. Changed the colors to work with what I had on hand and added another flower ( not shown).

Finished Crewel Wool project

That was a fun learning experience. Stitches went in, stitches plucked  out, color changes, technique changes and lots of learning. There are still several mistakes , visible to me I decided to leave so as to not stress the fabric out. I know how to do thing better the next time.

There Is No Alternative

"We must not focus our attention exclusively on the material, because though important it is not the main issue. The economic success of the western world is a product of its moral philosophy and practice. The economic results are better because the moral philosophy is superior. It is superior because it starts with individuals. " Margaret Thatcher

The moral philosophy she spoke of is none other than Christendom.
