This is what I have done for this month's TIF. If you recall, the question was "What do you call yourself?" My thoughts about this were blogged at the beginning of the May, and my decision was that I am most comfortable describing myself as a Needlewoman and certainly not as an Artist. This then is my piece.
It is the usual journal size and depicts a needle and two thimbles. I have a favourite antique silver thimble without which I cannot stitch, and a small collection of others. The fabrics are two of my absolute favourites, the red one is by Jinny Beyer and the blue butterflies came from some long forgotten shop several years ago. It appears in many of my creations. The star blocks represent my love of traditional quilting, and the background to the redwork has a very fine network of leaves, so represents my love of gardens.
