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 –
