Lisa at Greenbow

Sounds like a couple of good projects. I think it is fun to have silhouettes of "the sisters".
That embroidery piece is so pretty. How do you attach it to the silk? Do you sew it on by hand? Good luck.

Linda from Each Little World

Lisa — First you stretch the silk like you would a canvas for a painting. then staple it to the wood stretcher frame. Then sew on the embroidery by hand and hope my stitches don't show too much!


Great projects! You can always use the other silhouettes as props for some sort of arrangement. Your Chinese embroidery looks beautiful and will be even better once mounted. Hope you share the end product!

Erin @ The Impatient Gardener

Well you do bring up the positive aspect of winter, which is that it provides time to do other projects. Also I think sometimes anticipation makes everything better and the long wait until spring makes gardening (even weeding) so much better. Were it not for this forced separation from the garden, I probably wouldn't appreciate gardening nearly as much as I do.

That embroidery piece is so lovely. I can't wait to see it mounted.

Linda from Each Little World

​Peter - Thanks for suggesting I keep the other silhouettes to use in some way. I might have ditched them without thinking. ​

Erin — I agree that having a gardening break helps to keep up enthusiasm as well as energy. I love looking at all the garden bloggers who live in warmer zones but I like four distinct seasons.

Beth @ PlantPostings

I agree: I like four distinct seasons, too, although winter could be shorter. ;-) Great projects! How wonderful that the silhouettes are in such great shape. Enjoy your creative endeavors! I've just about completed my crocheted bag. Now I need to add the handles and the button/loop. (Oh, and I need to clean my house ... but that can always wait!)
