"Internet" series

                                    I-01"Internet Friends"

                                  I-02 "We met on the net" 
I used leftover yarn for everything except the white background.

                                  I-03 "Facebook Friends"
Again,  I used leftover yarn for everything except the background.

The making of "we met on the net" My Mother and I do a lot of stitching, and end up with short scraps of yarn. So one day, I thought it would be challenging to make a stitching using only these leftover yarns.

Seasons

S05 May "Wish Faerie"
May faerie with hawthorn tree.
If you tie a colored ribbon on a branch of a hawthorn, it will be viewed as a gift to the spirit of the tree, and will bring you luck. Yellow for friendship and happiness, red for love, green for wealth, and blue for health.
