|Drawn Thread's Violet Sampler|
|Drawn Thread's Cloister Garden|
|Courtney Collection's Red Bird|
FINISHED? Courtney Glau's Red Bird design, stitched with Belle Soie and AVAS on lambswool (probably 40 count, but possibly 36, I can't remember exactly ....). This design reminds me of some of Emily Carr's paintings, with her images of the NW Coast rainforests. Many other layers of meaning in it for me too, of course, perhaps I'll mention those later when it's framed. Right now I've just set it into a frame that I may use after I've painted it.
|Gathering Honey - Framed and Mounted|
So there we have it - four projects that were marching along, two complete, and now I'll concentrate more on the two Drawn Thread pieces with their multiple specialty stitches. And of course, I just might pull out another straight cross-stitch piece to work on when I want a change ;)
