Lavender scent from Scotland..

    A bookmark kit that I had bought from Inveraray Castle, (a very beautiful one in Argyll, Scotland during my summer vacation in 2008) had been forgotten in my stash until yesterday....
    I look back nostalgically ...I can recall the purple landscape and smell the perfect scent of lavender....

Reticello - First Stitch Of The Year

  Hello my friends! I'm back!

  My computer has just recovered from a severe hard disk stroke... Although my husband has managed to retrieve all my important files, he still haven't finished with many unadjusted settings.
  This is my progress so far on Lee's Step #7 Buttonhole Point Flower and Step #8 Buttonhole Point Arched Flower.

  This technique is very special, isn't it?
