My final Little Gems

"Yellow Quest" started out as stitchery on dyed paper, years ago -"Indian Gems" is a recycled indian-style top, and has motifs rescued and reapplied, as well as paisley motifs made of beads or french knots. Kantha-stitching through the thin silk was a delight -
"28. Tulipa" was finished on Sunday morning, and I happened to be on the Little Gems stand when a young lad won it -
The clusters of three backstitches are used on pojagi borders; the central panel is black print on calico, quilt-stitched here and there around the edges of the motifs.

And now - onto something a bit bigger - 60x60cm, perhaps ...

hmm yes - still pondering on the 60 x 60 whilst trying to recover from FOQ (I ended up completely exhausted and with some sort of stomach bug but wouldn't have missed any of it). Maybe my brain will work better tomorrow. Hope you managed to get your bondaweb - so sorry about all the mix-ups.
