new looks



Colin and I both went for haircuts yesterday. There are no before pictures for a very good reason. I left more hair on the floor of the salon than I now have left and Colin was looking like the bear's butt.


Work continues on this piece. I don't have a stash of embroidery floss so I find myself literally building thread, one strand at a time, from sewing threads. Six and eight strands at a time will make you slow down and be precise or the nest-knot monster just waits to pounce.You can click on both these shots for a close look.

You and your son look fantastic and I love your stitchery. Wonderfully complicated yet simple too! Love it.

Wonderful knots! (Don't even start an
embroidery floss collection...it will
take over your home.)

Oh now I see! Your hair is beautiful! I don't think I saw a before photo though. I am loving all the stitching in your pieces you are showing as well as the imagery. Very enchanting.

I keep coming back to this post. I am capticated by your photo of the multi-stranded french knots. Captivated. You should print and sell that picture.
