Beading and hand quilting

In the studio I am sewing dresses for myself, in anticipation of hot summer weather. See my page Clothes Sewing. Mostly blue dresses, hmmm, seems to be a theme . . .

On the sofa in the living room, in the beautiful evening sunshine, with the long rays of sunlight bouncing off the water at high tide and reflecting of all the walls and ceiling of the living room, I am delightedly doing handwork and listening to Wil Anderson podcasts: Wilosophy and TOFOP.

Adding the beaded dew drops to the cobweb embroidery. I love how this is proceeding.

Hand dyed fine weave cotton, stamped with dragonflies and other motifs.
