TIF and misc.

Thank you Annica, Muum and Kylee for the comments on the socks. They were easy to make, and rather quick considering the size of the needles:-). As the yarn is variegated, it is a constant surprise.
I've been working on the TIF, developping the idea of lavender and olive trees. I will use a mix of machine and hand embroidery. Here is the first part, with the machine embroidery done. Now I have to populate the trees by hand.

we were motorcycling ( and breaking down) in Provence in September and I remember smelling the lavender from roadside stalls as we rode by.

It is coming along quite nice. I can't wait to see the additions to the trees.

I can almost smell the lavender. What a creative way you chose to depict it.
Lovely, Vero!

This looks great - I love lavender. My small bushes have survived our winters for several years now!! You've been "tagged" - by me! And you'll understand why when you visit me next time.
