Threads are an important aspect of my life - I love to buy them, fondle them, and embroider with them. I have more threads than I will ever use, but they bring much joy to my life.

My friend, Patti, loves Mountmellick work, so I thought it would be fun to add elements of this type of embroidery, using my dyed mulberry silk threads instead of the thicker cotton white thread traditionally used in Mountmellick. Note the bullion leaves, the buttonholed feather stitch, and the buttonhole flowers.
I have included my silk ribbon flowers to finish.
