Speaking of stitches.........

I have resolved....

over and over...

that I want to keep a stitching project in hand.

(that keeps in mind that I have throughout my life anyways.......)

but since last summer.....when I was blessed with a Shakerag experience......
(since my first with India Flint...)

this time with Natalie Chanin and Diane Hall.......

I stitched.....


this.

I can't tell you how much work it was to get to this place....

I really can't..........


but I can tell you....



that I know there are those
who 
are on this journey 
with
me....

  3. I can well imagine how much hard work this piece has taken.... and so worth it. It really is beautiful. I'm intrigued by the Petoskey Stone..... and followed the link to find out more.

    1. Thank You! Honestly I think all the hand stitched projects I've seen turn out this way, that is, 'beautiful'. And what a surprise to me as I researched the 'stones' a little more....that Michigan was once below the Equator!
