I am participating in Anne Brooke’s #52tagshannemade #sew4thesoul slow stitch challenge for 2021. Week One’s theme is “all white”.
I used the process of slow stitch / stitch meditation to make an example piece for my embroidery guild. I call it “What is luck?”.
I made another Sydney Pouch, this time reminding me of sitting in my gramma and grampa’s screened in porch up on the hill.
I made another Sydney Pouch by Roxy Creations, this time a yellow garden theme with a different method of construction.
As part of TextileArtist.org Stitch Club, Jennifer Collier inspired me to stitch a paper glove.
I used the Sydney Pouch pattern by Roxy Creations to make this little collaged pouch.

As part of TextileArtist.org Stitch Club, Sabine Kaner inspired me to create an abstract design based on crumpled paper.
As part of TextileArtist.org Stitch Club, Vinny Stapley inspired me to create a panel with a dune grass motif using a lacey neutral color palette.
My embroidery guild always has an annual challenge of some type and this year was our “Hoop-D-Do” project, whereby we were to create a work using specific stitches to be displayed in the hoop itself. My display of flowers in a “wood” bowl speaks the 70s to me. And, as usual, I didn’t stick to the rules well and added my own flare – ha!
I made a felt ornament in the shape of the letter J for a friend. I was inspired by a letter R given to me, which hails from Mexico.
I was inspired by Victoria Gertenbach’s cover article on Quilting Arts magazine to create this seashell talisman with embroidery, beads, and a bit of longing for the beach!

I made a tiny felt mural with an embroidered bee and flowers for my gardening friend.

As part of TextileArtist.org Stitch Club, Haf Weighton inspired me to create a series of medallions representing the theme of “get well”. I used bark-on-wood coasters and fabric collage to highlight the chosen words of each medallion. This piece loosely represents Van Gennep’s rites of passage upon the theme of getting well.
