Blues...

Happy ones: roses on a navy blue silk foundation.



The designs are ones I have used before, just wanted to see how a dark(er) background would work.


Not bad. Maybe it is time to stop being afraid of avoiding dark backgrounds :)


Thank you, ladies for taking up on my invitation down memory lane, I really enjoyed reading each and every one of your comments. One of them was sent to me by e-mail, as for some reason Grace of Needles Pins and Dragonflies blog could not leave a comment to my previous post. The story she shared was so sweet and touching, that I asked her permission to share it with you, too:

"My Dear Aunt Lucy taught me to crochet when I was just about 7 or 8 years old.... she was patient and that summer, everyday I would get a small ball of thread...butchers twine really, and crochet my chain. At the end of the day, I would give it to Aunt Lucy and the next day start over again. At the end of the summer I asked her what would we make from the many chains I had given her. She sat me down and told me, that every day she would re-wind the ball for the next day. That what I had learned was to make the perfect chain so that now I could make whatever I wanted. I wasn’t even angry; for she did teach me to make the perfect chain which is the foundation for all that you crochet!" 

Thank you, Gracie, for sharing!


Wishing you all a wonderful week,

Annyira tetszenek a szalaghímzett ékszereid! Gyönyörűek, szépen kidolgozottak, precízek. :-)

LOve the blue background and the roses. Perfect!

The dark background is perfect. It really leaves one to focus on your beautiful stitching.

É bom saber que pelo mundo existem mulheres, que tem muitas histórias... e que são apaixonadas nos linhas e agulhas.
