Experimenting . . .

I have been very busy!  Ten pictures on display at New Visions until the middle of September.  Here are a few of them.  I was experimenting just for fun, hadn't plan to put them in a show or sell them, but when I needed more pictures I framed them . . . .

 Silk thread on silk, Jacobean crewel.
 Meet Henry Hedgehog, silk shading and gold work.
Embroidered leaves in silk thread.

And now keep your fingers crossed that they sell . . .  I will let you know.

Stitch 'n Pitch

 Another fun time at the Seattle Mariners' 8th annual Stitch 'n Pitch.  Pacific Fabrics collected the knitted and crocheted blocks to cover the baseball glove at the entrance of Safeco Field.  A couple of my friends made blocks, it was fun to see all the different colors and patterns. 
 The blocks will be donated to World Vision.
The weather was great and Seattle won!
