It's Friday and It's Finished!

 
Well, I promised a Friday reveal . . .
so we may as well get right down to business!



It started with an idea





and a concept behind the idea 
     




and this drawing


and an old piece from an embroidered tablecloth 
of unknown origin.




And here's how it turned out:



I'm relatively pleased with it (for a first attempt!)
  

So I framed it up like this:



and now I believe I'm going to make a few more 
so I can put them on Etsy.


 

And now (not to toot my own horn, but--)



Can a cow toot its own horn?


in other news . . . 
I'm going to Baltimore again! 


I also got accepted for St. Paul, Atlanta and San Francisco, but I'm going to have to consult my truck driver/booth hand as to his 2011 availability before I make any further decisions about my show schedule for next year.  But it's always good to have a deadline coming up.  And Baltimore is a big deadline!

So I suppose I'll have to quit fiddlin' and get back to REAL work.
(After a few more embroideries, of course -- there's still room for improvement.)

Luckily, I have plenty of unfinished work patiently waiting for me to notice it . . . 
 



Happy Weekend!

What a lovely piece -- I love old embroidered linens. Your bird is pretty cool too.

That kind of embroidery is timeless. Such a first-rate piece. I love the addition of your trademark birdie. Best wishes for lots of success with your Etsy projects.
