I have found a most wonderful blog by Brigette Dadaux. She is, of course, French, and I am having a most wonderful time perusing her embroidery graphs (grilles)and trying to translate her blog. Her grilles are available as downloads. Choose telecharger. Bonne broderie! (I think!) Merci, Brigette!
Well here I am again, night #2 of a hateful virus that has me feverish, then freezing (malaria?–no, that’s a sporozoan!) Except for steping out on the porch to snap a couple of photos, I have spent my day (and now my night) surfing the net in search of all things needle worthy.
I recently joined the Yahoo group of Crazy Quilting International. It’s actually 4 groups and you need to join all 4 to access all it’s features:

The eye candy alone is worth the trouble. It’s so rich, you can feel your teeth rot when you look at it!
I visited fellow members’ blogs:
