Stitching N Things

I'm done! I finished Blue Ribbon Designs' "Americana Panorama" on 40ct Silk Gauze! That was more of an undertaking than I thought it would be .. due to my not reading the chart as carefully as I should have before starting. The leaves on the trees and the flowers (in the bird square) were a bit much! oh well .. it's done and it looks pretty durn cool!

In the second (bottom) photo, I placed the color fabric it was stitched on .. and am choosing a similarly colored matt board to use as the mounting board.

Now to start some needle felting again! I have something in mind to put in each attendee of my October A Stitchalot Weekend's goodie bag .. we'll see if that idea comes to fruition!

Sunday, Dave and I will go downtown to Fenton's Art In The Park (if it doesn't pour like the weatherman thinks it may)..that's always a fun couple of hours browsing the different artisans. Sometimes I buy, sometimes just walk around. Then next week will be my crazy drive all over Michigan weekend. Michigan Fiberfest, Cheboygan High School reunion, wedding shower in Pinconning.

Oh Deb, this is SO cool! I just love silk gauze...and tiny stitching..but this defintely takes the prize. How fun to see one of my designs worked on 40 count silk gauze - I simply adore it!! I can't wait to see it will have to send me a photo, so I can share it with my website/newsletter readers - I am positive they would all be inspired by your wonderful finish. You sure brightened my day...thank you!
