A special piece
Gracewood Stitches, gave me the privilege of stitching the model for her design "Acorn Patch", using some lovely lambswool linen, and silks from Vikki Clayton (Hand-Dyed Fibers), Carries' Creations, and Au Ver a Soie. The design incorporates some of my favorite themes - patchwork, autumn, and acorns, and was a delight to stitch, with its rhythmic motifs and its symmetry. The gold silk in particular just glowed, bringing memories of spectacular fall days. Thanks, Kathy!
