Would you like to see Mom's latest creations?
My sister and I made a quick trip down for President's Day.
The penny rug above is a Mom original.
No pattern, just a desire for a penny rug in shades of green.
So beautiful and subtle in monochromatic tones.
Do you see the hexagon design? A hint at what else Mom has been working on...
As always, here stitches are absolutely perfect. Mom has a way with color!
This is a Maggie Bonanomi design from one of her books.
I stitched this one as well, but in a different color palette.
Again, so lovely and subtle in the colors that she chooses.
Mom is also working on a block of the month by Heart to Hand.
Even more beautiful in person.
"Hollyhock" by The Wooly Lady
So beautiful in its simplicity.
Mom has started working in a new medium - English Paper Piecing.
She has a stack of flowers completed, but I thought I would share just a few of the colors/patterns that she is working with. Can't wait to see what this will become!
My sister also brought along her projects...
Pam's working on a knitting technique called color blocking.
So pretty! I love the color combination of gray and mint green. I'll have to remember that combo ;)
Pam was practicing the technique on smaller projects first and made my parents can cozies. So pretty! She also made me a bottle cozy. I'm such a bad sister that I forgot to take a photo! Grrr.
I'm so jealous that my sister always makes beautiful items that are useful, too! Mine just lay around...
Planning to head back down to my parents in just a few days, but I don't think that there will be anything new to share already :)
Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.
