Alphabet sampler progress

After stitching the tiny lazy daisy leaves and stems I wanted to add some flowers to the letters.
                        

When I was searching for something else in my aari embroidery supplies box I found these tiny mirrors which were perfect for this sampler.So far it looks good I think.

Happy stitching!

Alphabet sampler

First of all I am so glad that my blogger commenting issues are sorted out all by itself. I did nothing so I have no idea how it changed. Now that it's sorted out I can visit all my favorite blogs and comment as well,yay!

I have a thing for samplers like most of the embroiderers. So I've started an alphabet sampler and I promise that I will post my progress here. 
                         


So far it's only A,F,B and G.

Happy stitching!

Knotted garden

Punch needle embroidery was one of the techniques that caught my attention in my childhood.
Artisans used to put up stalls in trade fairs and show us how to do it. Also very often they used to visit my school to show the children this cool craft . We used to call this as pick pick embroidery back then.
                                          


Knotted garden is a small project that I did this week. I haven't decided about how to finish this one yet. The punch needle and the threads are available here

Happy stitching!

Need help with blogger comments issues

Hello everyone,

After a hiatus I signed in  and tried to post comments in some of the blogs (blogger) that I follow but unfortunately couldn't leave my comments. I tried several times and in different blogs but it's not working.

Did something like this happen to any one of you? If yes, then could you please let me know how did you solve this issue?

It's frustrating and I hope one of you would help me.

Thanks in advance
Anita
