Happy St. Patrick's Day

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Brazilian dimensional embroidery.  This Millefiori design is named "My Wild Irish Rose" and was featured in a back issue of The B.E. Wrap-Up, newsletter of the Brazilian Dimensional Embroidery Guild, Inc.  A pattern with instructions is still available in the B.E. Ed Projects Book (available here). Look for a second Ed Projects book soon -- these books are loaded with teachable, traceable B.E. designs.
And while we are enjoying ourselves on this fine March morning, here is another of my Brazilian embroidery designs named "The Celtic Rose". It's great practice for making perfect bullion stitches and it's available in the book My LadyFlowers by Rosalie Wakefield. The Lacy Chain border was also an idea for a frame that I had a while back.
Thank you for listening to my commercial. Here's an entertaining suggestion I found on Pinterest that you might enjoy.
Have a great day - thread up a needle, Go Forth and Stitch.
