can't think of a witty title...

I have been so slack with my posting lately. Probably because I haven't been doing that much stitching. Motivation is lacking...still.
here is what I have done over the last month or so.

This is a DYB for an Xmas RR i am in. This belongs to Hideko. Still alot more work to do on this.
 
The red stocking I showed you a while ago. The embellishment is complete , it just needs finishing. I am goint to try adding a wee pocket to these. So not exactly 'lining' it, but somewhere to stash a small gift.
 
Blue stocking. more embellishment to do.
 
 This is some of the work I did on a block for Hideko. Her theme was the book "Lark Rise" with a focus on the "May Day" chapter. I did 'the lady' atop a garland of  flowers.
In the story , 'the lady' was a doll dressed in a blue. The 'bits' out the side are the wooden poles used for carrying the garland thru the village streets.
I did do more work on this block, but forgot to photo it, and it has alread heded home to Hideko in Japan, intime for this years May Day!
