Greetings folks. This is my slow progress on Ruth. Vase and flowers to the right and I'm done. Yes of course I changed a few colors.
But I wanted to show you Barb's work (Village Folk Art). I am just so impressed with anything she creates. Here are the Peas in a Pod. Is this sweet or what? She dyed the velvet to that pea shade and it's perfect. Maggie Bonanomi design from her Thistle Down Moon book.
Then there's her fraktur (watercolor) and acrylic painting. Love those pears!
Punch needle, cross stitch, wool applique, she does it all! You probably have seen her work on her blog but I am just amazed that no matter what she does, it's that good.
And now something for Vickie. Pink at night.
The petunias are finally picking up and just glowing in the dark.
While working on the hoop last night, I found that flipping it onto your chest is the easiest way to run the thread ends. Backwards is best!
For Ronda - you're no-reply so I'll answer you here. That hoop is made by Lacis, available at JoAnn's online (coupon eligible), Amazon, and other craft sites. I got mine at 50% off, didn't want to spend a lot just to try it out, and the hoop comes with it. For additional larger hoops, Lacis website is here.
Beautiful days this past week, found a new Italian store in Boardman Ohio, finally checked out a new Subaru Outback. My husband is attached to his old Explorer and having a difficult time with choosing a new vehicle.
Have a great weekend! The last one in July. Can't believe it.
