Jo's March Giveaway
Beautiful isn't it! This is the March giveaway Jo posted on her blog. I was delighted to have been selected as the winner as I have admired Jo's embroidery and work very much. Her blog is one of my favorites and I check her site frequently. I will be delighted to own a sample of her work which is great inspiration to me.
Jo has perfected lots of fun stitches in this postcard including her beautiful bullion roses and Drizzle stitch on the fan. I recall how frustrated I was doing this bullion stitch for the first time back in August 2007 when I registered for my first Crazy Patch Class. But I LOVED the work and still recall how I redid my entire first block because the lace border I had inserted on my second seam was upside down. Why does perfection haunt me so?
Amazingly I found a great online Bullion Stitch Video Tutorial which was very helpful. What would I ever do without all the wonderful friends and advice I find online. I appreciate all you bloggers so very much.
Thank you to all of you for making my day!
