Here a stitch....there a stitch....

Next up...Hearts & Swirls Biscornu!  Playing with memory wire tonight and randomness.  Which tends to freak out most stitchers.  Sorry...but it can be very freeing.  

Being your own inspiration...I painted this wooden tassel several years ago.

I've been busy...

Biscornu Three ... Knot Garden ...

simply bursting with knots! 

Adding the last few beads...around 1a.m.
Just couldn't stop until it was finished!

The center is left 'un-stitched' as that's where the center button
is attached during the finishing.

Fini !

The Mardi Gras Biscornu all dressed up and ready to go!  In my last update I'd mentioned ordering the fabric...I was concerned as to how the colors would print.  Seems I had nothing to worry over as it is pretty perfect.

I'm busily working on the next addition to this series, the 'Knot Garden'.  I'll post some snaps of it soon.

Actually, just one & he's either taking off or landing, reminds me of myself!

I'm thinking this one will have to become a painted canvas soon.  This was a card commission for a

stitching friend who belongs to an infamous group of women who gather once a week to stitch.

They call themselves the 'Swans' which I now know stands for 'Society of Women addicted to

Needlepoint!  Thank you to Stephanie for leaving a comment, so I could re-post this correctly.

Happy Fourth of July!

Friend, Barbara Garrana is presently making a computer bag for me with my Peace Sign featured on the front of it.  Can't wait to see it all finished.  

Barb...if you're reading this...NO pressure!
