Lakewood Revisited

Busy busy!  I thought my next show had to be up the first weekend of December.  I was wrong.  It has to be up one week earlier than that!  It's all good though.  I've been plugging away and things have been coming together quite nicely.  I spent the weekend working on the Lakewood scene again.  That was the one with all the Birdsfoot Trefoil - which I thought were Buffalo Beans.  I took the first piece out to the lake to show my mom (who does not have internet).  She took one look at it and nabbed it!  It's now hanging on her walls.  I really liked it too, so I figured I would make one for the show.  It's small and full of Sorbello stitches done in thread and embroidery floss.

Lakewood #2, work in progress

Imagine that!  I snapped that photo in my living room at night, without a flash.  I had my Ott light next to me.  It's incredible!  Love that light...

I had already forgotten this stitch that Margot showed me, so I had to look it up.  It's here if you want to see how it's done.

Back to stitching, and awaiting the snow!

I'm running out of synonyms for gorgeous so gorgeous will have to do. :-)

Sorbello stitch, eh? Have you seen the work of Jan Beaney and Jean Littlejohn, embroiderers extraordinaire from the UK? In one of their booklets -- #11, "A Tale of Two Stitches", Sorbello is one of the two that is featured. These books are expensive but Copperfield's often has them at a good price. You might want to check them out at doubletrouble-ent.com.
