More winter embroidery!

I have not been well but the good side of that is that I have more time to sit & stitch to wile away the time until I feel better again! I am uploading some more embroidery for you to look at. The one of the 3 flowers is a colouring page designed by Sandi Palmer, & it just begged to be stitched so here it is! The bible cover is taken from an extant piece which Elizabeth the 1st carried on her bible. The Pulled Thread picture was one I saw in an English "Stitch" magazine & was designed by Kathie Pirson. I have changed a few stitches & added some seed beads. Until next time Happy perusing!
