Photos by Valie (and blatantly stolen by me)
To me sapphires are blue; to Valie
they are pink! Here is Valie's wonderful version of Sew Sapphire
stitched on 40ct linen hand-dyed linen from Bénédicte with House of Embroidery overdyed cotton threads 'Papaver' and 'Tulip'. She did, however, include a splash of blue! I am wondering how the lady will finally finish this beautiful piece of stitching.

A quick snap of my miniature knitting with a US25c coin for scale. It's actually easier to do than I thought it would be and, so far, I have only had a little trouble with pain and stiffness in my right index finger otherwise my hands have been fine. I am dreaming of stripey socks!
For the past week or so we have had rain - not just a shower or two - but incessant rain from morning til night (and probably overnight too). I am sure I am developing skin between my toes - is this a sign of more rain? I took this picture a couple of weeks back - a tiny primrose flower makes an early appearance so maybe Spring is on it's way? Now if only I could see a little sunshine...
I stitched some more on Alphabets à ... I love it!
Thanks for visiting
