I have a constant project ont go for Quilts for Comfort. I have a Skateboard, skull and bookcase quilt all sandwiched ready for quilting. Oh, I forgot a lavender quilt which I have to finish up too. Also hand sewing a b/w apple core for myself but that is slow ATM.

Terri thanks for posting hope you'll post again when finished. Isn't surprising when you add a bit of thread how the scene begins to pop.

Linda getting older comes with its problems this week I have struggled with another diverticularitus attack so tried to rest and take it easy, and that is not in my nature so I find that hard. Did a bit of reading and sleeping. Sorry to hear that you suffer with Arthritis my Gran had that I think hers was rheumatoid I know it can be very painful and disabilatating. It is alway nice to get fresh food from the garden, I miss mine. So have you been sewing of late?

Time just seems to be passing quicker and quicker Terri, lovely work. My mam used to say you can't hang birds on the wall, she also had a thing about not having green on the bed.lol

Ally I do still have my allotment, it's been quite hard this year with Arthritis etc but my loving hubby who hates to garden has done some digging and grass cutting. Lots of fresh fruit lately. Rhubarb, gooseberries , raspberries red and white arrange, blueberries but only 2 cooking apples for some reason.

Hi all, been a bit absent of late, partly due to difficulties signing in and part due to life getting in way.

Ally, your thread paintings are beautiful, as always. You have a magical way in creating your subject.

Due to a few problems here, Ecuadorian sister moved in with us, had emergency surgery, and after almost a year here has now moved out. During this time, Ray tore miniscus on both sides of his left knee, now doing okay and no surgery, friend moved to Ecuador from the States and helped her get settled and then my son and DIL, who is Ecuadorian, came to visit, so not much sewing or anything.

Finally having some “down” time, have managed to play with some thread painting and working on a sketch that will be transformed into a thread painting. Felt good to play, even if just for a bit.

Linda- Thank you. i guess you could say the thread painting bug has got me, I really enjoy it. Though I still enjoy quilting too. Was only thinking of you the other day when someone was talking about allotments, do you still have yours?

Very impressive Ally, I have 'nt done anything with embroidery for a long while.

Cindy- it is annoying when hacker do this. I am not too computer savvy so means I have to ask the kids to help me!

Glad you can get on here.

Thanks Ally for sharing them here. I am locked out of FB due to "suspicious " activity on my account. Yes, I've been hacked again. So, for now,  guess I am limited to where I can access things. Doesn't make sense I get penalized for something I didn't do.

It is World Embroidery Day today, whether it be hand embroidery or Freemotion embroidery I.e. Thread painting. I posts this on my FB Etched In Thread By Ally account I know some are not on FB so thought I would put on here.

This site has been quiet since November.

Very nice, Ally. Makes me want to explore to find out what is beyond the gate.  Hope you have a successful show.
