This is a small Journal I have started for my DIL Terra.

shoesthe back cover with some green shoes!

pages in the journal have bits and pieces of handwork which she likes.





I did not fill the pages with all kinds of stuff, that’s her job, she is a pretty good photographer, so the journal will be for notes and copies. She will add what she needs. Terra is also a beader, her ideas and work are so delicate.


I am so glad to see a new year on this earth. I thank God for that.

Have been working on small projects. Hopeing to get some new things going soon. I see so many wonderful work by so many ladies. I want to be a part of that.

This month I have tried a few embroidery pieces as samples I guess.  Below is the first one. img_0745dragThe two dragonflies are in cross stitch. The

threads are DMC. Flowers are stitched with #5 DMC small beads are added. The pattern is my own. Had hoped to do three in a row. But ran out of space. Will post a second and third piece.

on the right bottom is the brownish look of the heat gun. the dark blue line on the right is not really a line, it is the bending of the light on the object.
