New Ribbon Embroidery: Jungle Flower

"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.

New French Knot Mandala Embroidery: Sunset Sorbet

In advance of the 78th League of New Hampshire Craftsmen’s Fair this August, I’m busy embroidering felt hats like crazy.

"Sunset Sorbet," a newly embroidered art-to-wear felt hat (#37 in 2011).

Although I love each of my creations, I’m particularly smitten with this warm embroidery, created primarily with french knots.

If you’re in New Hampshire between August 6 – 14th, 2011, please visit me in Tent 7.

I’m looking forward to meeting the lucky person who’ll take this beauty home!
