It's been awhile since my last post. Been walkin' a bit on the wild side. Lots of stuff going on in my life. My oldest son is graduating with an Associates degree on May 13. My daughter is starting Dental Assistant school on May 31, even with 5 children. My middle son has just escaped a major layoff due to sale of the company he works for. I am in the process of going back to work. Like I said, just a bit wild around here.
Been working a lot in my sewing room but not too many finishes to show you. I did get the Patriotic Denim center sewn together. Not what I originally planned, couldn't work in the white stars, but I still like it. I have an idea for the borders, but Flit has to play around with the idea for a bit before I know if it will work. Here is where it stands now.
Finished this piece of embroidery. Started it months ago but got bored doing the sky. It only took me an hour to complete.
That's it for new projects. I thought you might like to see some very old ones. When I was in my late teens and early 20's, I got hooked on crewel embroidery kits. One of my favorite motifs was Jacobean design. I had a new apartment. Need I say more? I just pulled these out and washed them up. Some are in pretty bad shape due to age and the fact they had been pillows on my sofa. Not sure what to do with them now. Have a look.
