"Jungle Flower," a new hand-knit felt hat with freehand embroidery.
My manic needlework preparations continue for the League of New Hampshire Craftsmen’s Annual Fair, which runs August 6 – 14, 2011.
This latest freehand embroidery, “Jungle Flower,” will join “Sunset Sorbet” in the CraftWear exhibit in the main lodge building, along with the work of nearly 50 other juried artists.
I hope you’ll be able to visit.
Tiny glass seed beads embellish this freehand ribbon embroidery on felt.
The 77th Annual League of New Hampshire Craftsmen’s Fair runs August 7-15, 2010. That means I have 2 more months to embroider the 100+ felt hats I’ve made this winter.
One of my latest designs is this lovely pink flower embroidery, featuring a hand-cut caribou antler button with glass seed beads.
Simple & sweet. I can’t wait to see who scoops up this one…
Just before the holidays, I received this glowing testimonial from one of my very first customers:
Susan Houlihan of Anchor Point enjoys Alaskan winters with her CCM felt hat.
“My ‘Carrie Hat’ kept me warm through my long walk in the ice fog. Luna wishes she had one for her whiskers and muzzle!
After 6 years, I still wear this hat every day, all winter long. And I still love it.”
