Winter Behind Us is finished







This piece has been such a pleasure to work on. No angst, no regrets. Each element taking it's place in the construction phase and very few false starts (and picking out) as I stitched. So contemplative I really didn't give a  thought to the title until it was finished.

I was cleaning up the scrap heaps last night and found I have a good deal more of that tablecloth with the embroidered wheat stalks, leaves and vines in a variety of dyed colors. "Sweet", as Jake says.

  1. Love your piece! And, oh, how I wish it were true. It's not behind us here in Wisconsin. But your piece gives me hope that it soon will be.

    don't you love it when a piece arrives like the way you describe this one did? I wonder if the coming spring helped it along. It's really lovely.

Tell me everything!

A hot mess

Right after this sunset, the pink moon peeked over the opposite horizon for a few minutes before it was swallowed whole by a thunder...

Play it again Sam.
