My first interest in embroidery began when I was preparing my glorybox, making tablecloths, runners and doily sets.
Later, after my marriage it changed to knitting through the years and birth of my five children. I added dress making to my repertoire.
As the children grew and I had some time for myself, I became friends with older ladies at church and it was then I was introduced to crossstitch and wool embroidery.
When my husband retired and our children were independent we made the move to Charlton from Ringwood East in 1994.
I was asked to join C.W.A. ladies and in my 17 years there I found out there were so many types of beautiful embroidery stitches. I have tried many stitches with the help of great friends.
My largest project was done in Stump Work combining all the National State Flowers –
S.A.Sturts Desert Pea
N.T.Sturt’s Desert Rose
Australia's National Flower - Wattle
