Timely stitching

The Gothic Arches theme for this week is Time.

I'm so glad the stamped clock shows up, as you have to turn the arch around in real life to get the effect of the gold. What you can't see, though, is the shine of the metallic thread.

Ohhh boy! You've done it again -make me drool that is! How I wish there were workshops and classes around here :-( If you are on tour next year in this area I inist you take a day out to come round and show me how to make a background. I love this background to that gorgeous young lady and it is one of my all time favourite sayings....
