Thanks, TIF and Tutes

How's that for an overabundance of 'T's??

First, thank you so much for all your comments yesterday about #1 son's breakup. It's nice to know people care!

The picture today is a closeup I took of the area I was working in today on the TIF project. On the dark area on the upper rightish side you can see some French Knot Roses, which I've never done before. I flubbed up one of them, but am pretty pleased with the rest. My friend Marie has a new blog and has posted a tutorial on how to make these, and has today posted another picture of some cool roses. Please check it out at http://sredeluxe.blogspot.com

Below (& slightly to the left of the roses) you can see a flower group I did using some round 'things' I had in my stash (spacers for beaded necklaces??) which I 'filled' with pearls to make the flower centres. Not bad. The seam treatment to the left of that is pretty simple and then I added the heart, which is from a necklace I picked up at a yard sale. Wonder if the diamond in it is real?
