I have a couple of mumblings for you today -
- the International Freeform Fiberarts Guild has an incredible exhibition entitled 'Flora and Fauna' and you can see it HERE. Be sure to scroll down to 'The Artists' and click on each name to see the amazing pieces they have created. Thanks to Cyra for the heads up on this one.
- and for something else that is equally as amazing check THIS out! You can also see a video about it HERE.
- and for a third amazing piece of art have a look at what Shirlee Fassell has done HERE.

This is a seam treatment I used on the 'secret' project I'm working on. I thought I would break it down for you so you can see how I did it.
First I worked a row of cross stitches which I topped (and bottomed) with rows of back stitch - both worked in embroidery floss. I finished that off with two rows of fly stitches worked in metallic thread.
Hopefully this little diagram will help you to see what I did.
Now, the question arises - would you like me to continue with this and do a little series of seam treatments with the instructions to make them? Or are you beyond bored with my embroidery? Stand up and vote and we'll see what happens!
And, just for fun....
