'If you make happiness your goal, then you're not going to get to it… The goal should be an interesting life."

And this one is nearly finished.

All the embroidery is done, including attaching the silk to the Vilene backing and machine satin stitching all round, while holding my breath in case the spool of thread ran out before I'd finished. 

Bottom left shows how the Lynda Monk treatment of the Vilene turned out. It isn't quite as vibrant as I'd expected, perhaps because I didn't quite have the right materials. However, muted is probably better.

Tonight will be spent whipping the pieces together to make a vessel.

Now to find something else to do, apart from the never ending blanket knitting - several rows had to be unpicked owing to making mistakes while reading subtitles in BBC foreign thrillers on Saturday night, and as it's knitted in the round, the rows are getting longer as I go on.

What a beautiful piece! I love your colors and stitches. Don't you just love it when you are close to the finish line with a project?
