Beginning of another year...

Over the holidays I did quite a bit of sewing. I have manged to add these elephants, peacocks,,and paisley blocks to the bohemian quilt that is in the making.

I love the colours of this peacock..

 I incorporated the embroidered motifs on the background fabric to the paisley design, I think it blends in well.

..... some pencil drawings I had in my sketch pad..

A very happy new year to all my friends....
