this month i was finally able to meet my UK stitching buddy Linda, we have exchanged, all kinds of goodies and emails over the years but finally a face to face meeting on Mercer Island,WA.
i am standing with black on and Linda is standing next to me she runs The Sampler Guild in the UK and she is wonderful. Beth in light blue to my right and then Becky, and Linda's friend Denise and Julie in red. we had a great dinner and lots of laughter. How lucky can one person be to have such good friends who enjoy what you enjoy. Life is good.
while walking with my daughter in Seattle WA, her new hometown and we happened upon these wonderful sweater trees. it made me smile and i was so happy that there are such creative people in the world and that they love to share their creativity.
i have finished the wedding sampler for one of my daughter's friend who is getting married in August. i went with a very simple design that i made up and i used some beads to give a sparkle. i used Hand Dyed Fibers which i love and some Gloriana, all variegated silk threads.
now on to the framers sometimes the hardest part for me.
should it be in a round frame, square? dark wood, black, matts or no matts... the questions are endless when it comes to framing and i am lucky i have a great framer who helps me make decisions.
