the stitching on this really has the feel of the wind and sea.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I wish I would have the initiative to sew...I HATE IT...although I do make hand-sewn Victorian lampshades. They're alot of work and expence, but beautiful when finished, but the eternal procrastinator, I have 3 projects in the works and no ambition to finish...hmmmm...maybe if I stayed off the computer...

Your work is beautiful and so full of color, I especially love the oranges. I lived in Florida for a few years and got to witness the groves before they started tearing them up for housing additions...bummer!

I love the curving lines that spiral through out this piece. It makes me want to brave doing more embroidery on my pieces. Did some last night, French Knots! ;-)

Thanks for coming to my blog today!
Hope you'll be back again soon.
