New Stitching

I belong to the local art guild and there's a local business,Weiser Classic Candies, that has a gallery wall where the guild hangs artwork. The artwork is changed every two months and I always struggle to have three to five small pieces to hang, frequently I hang photographs. I actually had something new to hang this month. I really like having something to do with my hands so I've been putting together some small scraps and stitching them. I had finished one last week and I realized that if I mounted it on a canvas it could be one of my pieces to hang.

The Weekly Leaf
This week I used a square that had been printed on my gelli plate. I have a pile of prints, I've printed more than I've needed  and sometimes it's handy to have especially now that there aren't many leaves around.

I actually did three prints from that leaf, I'm using the one on top.

  1. Your woven piece is fabulous and a stunning display of your handwork. As always, I love the leaf and the echo stictching around it.

  2. It's such fun to see what you have done with the leaf each week. I also love your woven, hand stitched piece.I'm playing around with hand stitching right now and this is great inspiration.

  3. I never tire of looking at your fabulous stitching:-)
    Oh how I miss those leaves when they're gone (sigh)

  4. Your Green Sampler has a lot of character.

  5. I love the variety of stitching on your sampler--nice mix of change and repetition.

  6. Your woven sampler is beautiful!
