It's Mine!

It's mine! All mine.
I won this lovely piece of stitched heaven from Karen Ruane!

I love it!

Delicate embroidery on thick paper creates a wonderful confection, reminding me of wedding cakes and candy frosting that crunches when chewed, but slowly melts into a layer of sweetness if you let it sit upon your tongue.

Karen creates beautiful embroideries on fabrics, on paper, and even blends the two surfaces for a unique result. I always feel refreshed after drooling over her white works. You can see more of her creations here

Thanks so much Karen for sharing your work with me. I love my little square. It's mine! I'm so lucky!

I hope your day has luck and beauty in it.
My house guest arrives this afternoon, so I'll be offline for a few days. Hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Thanks for visiting.
Hugs from Suz
