Computer as we all can find have minds of their own and mine is certainly not taking orders when it comes to sending my last pages in to Barbara for the Needlework Masters Monthly Stitch A Long all o0f a sudden it will not recognise Barbara's email address so I am posting my last two pages now as proof that I have completed the year.
My November page has a Needle painting of a bird of paradise flower we did grow these spectacular flowers when we lived in Cormandel with the warmer climate, the bright colour of the flower rather over shadows the small bronze beetle.
To finish the year, my December Page has a piece of Drawn Thread work and a lovely silver metal thread beetle.
This has been a very enjoyable project, thank you Barbara for the Challenge, my journal is a really treasure and not something I would have thought of doing. I now wait to see what challenges may come up to stitch in 2014. meanwhile if you want to see everyone's journal pages visit .here
