a winning streak...

During the past few weeks I have won 2 blog giveaways. I seem to be on a roll. I was very excited to win Nat's giveaway of a beautiful sashiko bag and a gorgeous book on kimonos. And then I won a lovely stitchery from Emmy's  blog. I haven't received the stitchery yet but I am so excited to be able to have one of Emmy's pieces. She does such beautiful work.

Nat's giveaway--she also sent me some beautiful indigo cloth pieces and some silk thread
I've been working away on the embroidery cloth with all the new techniques I'm learning in Karen Ruane's class. Here are just a few photos of the last few things I've stitched.

The other day I found a bag full of my mothers scarves, gloves and a sari! It was a treasure chest. I could still smell my mother in the scarves.

I like it when I know the winner of a giveaway, too, it sort of feels like I won!

The piece with your mother's things is so pretty and inspiring, once again. Thank you, Deanna. And I consider you an artist, I've been meaning to tell you.

(If this message comes through twice, just delete one, I've been having trouble leaving comments on blogs lately!)
