Ballet

Recent work

Some recent stitching projects (both in progress and done): And I had the good fortune of going to an art class my good friend Kate was doing yesterday afternoon at one of our local libraries. We worked with acrylics and made lemon still life paintings. Not bad for 40 minutes, right?

The felt ornaments keep on coming!
