    Please tell Helen that while we're looking forward to seeing what she can create in quilt form, we'll happily wait while she finishes this one, knowing she's giving it the care and attention it needs - no matter how long it takes to get it done!

    P.S. She doesn't have to adopt me-- I'll be happy if she remembered me with even a tiny little one of these!
    I will tell her. She told me that she is going to make some smaller ones as this has been a large project. So we will wait and see what she creates. E

    Now that is one grat compliment, I have given her the Boards name so hopefully she has had a look at all your wonderful comments.

    To be honest I think you are right they should be preserved in a museum.

    YES!! You are so right. They, or at least one, should be in a museum for the world to see.
    I wonder if the school in London would help in that regard.
    Helen, your work is simply stunning. Thank you for allowing Elle to share it with us.

    For all those who wanted to know of a book to learn embroidery one of our ladies at the sewing club told me there is a lady who has written and shown how to embroider beautiful pictures of nature.

    Think you might be interested in these. I have searched AMAZON.CO.UK and they have the books both used and new.

    Here are the titles : By Helen Stevens´ all 3 books I can find
    Embroiderer´s Countryside - Masterclass Edition
    The timeless Art of Embroidery
    Exquisite Embroiders Year

    Hope that helps
