We're home

Okay, we've been home for a couple of days but now I'm starting to feel like my brain has arrived. There was so much cool stuff at the show to marvel at.

I owe you a couple of pictures......

First is my carrot lady walking her broccoli pups, stitched by Lee Cox.

Lee is going to write up her thread and stitch choices for us. It is just the best. The broccoli pups somehow look more like pups now that they are sooooo dimensional. And the fur on the lady. Lee had to sit with her vaccuum at hand as she was trimming this fur. Thank you, Lee for sharing.

Next we have one of Leigh Richardson's Guadalajara canvases. This was stitched by Holly Waters and is amazing.

I'm fascinated by all the fun threads, beads, stitches. I want to stitch it now! Holly, you did a great job!

If you haven't looked at Leigh's website, I encourage you to do so. Leigh Designs
At each show Leigh has a new theme to introduce. There is rarely a link from one group to the next, but always, they are incredibly well painted and designed. I've never met a designer who reinvents herself so many times. Kudos Leigh.

I guess that's my news for this evening.

Happy Stitching and Happy Father's Day.

Astounding pieces, Ruth. Thank you so much for sharing!

There is nothing better than studying what great stitchers have done over morning coffee....

They are both lovely but I find the carrot lady walking her brocoli pups absolutely darling.

That is a piece that I would love to stitch, no doubt about it. Great that Lee is going to write up her thread and stitch choices as I am hopeless with those things.
