Back in action with BE Bullion sampler

Hi everyone!!!

Loooooooooooonnnnnnnnng time!!! Thanks to all who put in there best wishes for the workshop . And thanks to all the silent readers..I know your good wishes too are there with me..ain't so,ladies?

Yes, the workshop went well. The participants learned quite a few things and got frustrated with rayon threads :) They were so used to cotton yarn that they were yanking and pulling the BE threads just as they do with the others.The number was less-due to many cancellations since it was vacation time - but I don't think I could've managed a large number of people. Lesser the number, better one can teach and better they learn. But by the end of it I was sort of saturated with BE and didn't want to do it for some time - infact didn't want to touch needle and thread at all. Hence this gap in posting.Hope that explains :)

A couple of days back I took up my needle and thread to finish of the bullion sampler Iam working on . I added a few more flowers to it. Here it is -

French hydrangea and wisteria(right side). I made a wrong choice of thread for the wisteria .It looks kinda heavy. Should've gone for fine thread .

April flower

Here's the long shot.
Looking at the pic now , I think a couple more flowers could be added.Let me see what more can I come up with. Here's the pic of the other side .

Hope you enjoyed my return ;)
Love,luck and sunshine,

Deepa, this is lovely.... sometimes it just helps to take a break, clears the mind and rejuvinates the soul!

I was in that same group and since she only gave the trunk and some leaves, I don't see why the flowers can't be shown--you "made them up". Great job, I too have taken mine out to finish. I jsut may use your ideas!
