I'm so inspired by the winter Spirea photos along with those Sorbello stitches. I am making a couple more to create a set of three that will go in one large frame. It's a gorgeous frame, and these colors look incredible in it!

I'll load this up with those pretty knots like I did here...

This is a very relaxing stitch. I have to really watch while I do this one - not like the French Knots that I can do nearly with my eyes shut. There's a lot of weaving involved in this one. If you miss it, you can go back to my Saturday post to see how it's done.
Next month, the Bridge City NeedleArts Guild is having an exhibit at the Centre Galleries. This is the local Embroiderer's guild under the EAC that I'm now a member of. All my thread paintings will be in show and sale elsewhere at that time, so I think this particular hand stitched piece will be perfect for the embroidery display! (3 shows in one month? Sure why not? lol)
Now I'm off to Creative House Sewing & Education Centre. That's where I'll be teaching this fall. A little birdie told me they are now stocking loads of Wonderfil thread there. I must go see for myself! Have a great day!
