IHSW in June

Another 3rd weekend well spent! I worked on Mediterranean Mermaid which will be a gift...

And Tall Seasons, which was in danger of becoming my first ever UFO (UnFinished Object). I meant to get further, but I need to stitch in such an awkward position my wrists could not take it (sniffle, sadly I have heard The Mother is having problems with her wrists too now!)

Hopefully I will post again soon, I have started a new Mystery Halloween piece... The Maiden

Lilac Framed

Here she is in all her glory, the framing has made this my favorite piece. You cannot see it in the photo, but the glass bubbles outward (so excited!).

Framed by Sara Lamp
who has moved to Castelli Art Framing
6056 W. Jefferson Blvd.
Los Angeles, CA 90016
I am constantly in awe of her framing and am eternally grateful...

WIPocalypse June - A Finish!!!

I am very excited to report I have finished another project off my WIPocalypse list! "Love Letter" was stitched in 10 days on 32ct ODL Vintage Pear using anchor floss (which I will endeavor to never use again, too fibrous and unyielding).
The Crone found this project for me while visiting the Mother. The saying speaks to me, hinting at a story yet to be told.
