Brood

I made these pages for Jill. I chose the theme of "nature" from a list of suggested themes. This isn't what I originally planned, but I'm quite happy with the results. This is the first time that I've tried to stitch a tree -- and I think that it will happen more often.I've actually finished all of the art that needs to be sent before I move! I'm now trying to work ahead on May's art! 25 days until the move. Today I'm packing everything from drawers. I'm almost finished packing. I'm determined not to have a box that is labeled "box-o-junk" I have a few every move -- and, while they are amusing when you open them a few years later, I am REALLY trying to pare down. Plus, I told Lauren that I have thrown out all of the junk. She comes home from France in a week and a half. I'd better get throwing......

Love the sketchy/stitchy thing going on here. You're a true master at this in my humble opinion.
