Re-Stitching, recieving and some more glass

Last night I started to work on the re-stitch for the QFRR - I don't know why (or maybe I do) but I think I was avoiding doing this for a while
- here is a snap -


I'll finish this up tonight and get at Carol's and have them out on Thursday - or at least that's the plan right now. I am really liking the silk - Raisin Wine from HDF - and the re-stitch linen is LL Vintage Lentil.

I know that my Needle roll was received by Britt from the HOE. I really like BBD and so I used part of the mystery pattern from the recent Loose Feathers to create the needle roll
- Here is a snap of the exchange -

I like this so much that I want to do one for myself!!


Here are today's snaps of the Chihuly Glass exhibit -


These are called "Reeds" and the tallest in the back stand well over 10+ feet tall

This is a display from the "Basket" series -
these are based on traditionally Native American baskets.


A long shot of the "Glass Garden" which just blows me away it is so spectacular!

Thanks for stopping by!!

Take care,
edgar
