We are having beautiful weather here in chicago except now we could use some of that rain that poured down all of June and July or seemed like it. Either a feast or a famine.

I was in a class with Ellie Sienkiewiczk back in Jan. 2005. It was in the Keys in Florida. It was a delightful 3 day class and I started this piece of embroidery and did finish it when I arrived home or should say over the next year or so. I have decided it should not just sit rolled up in a drawer and am either going to have it framed as is or make it a center for a wallhanging.

Ellie was kind enough to sign it and make a little notation on the stamp we used and then I just signed my name.

If you ever get a chance to take a class with Ellie make sure you do. She is wonderful as a person and as a teacher. Very modest.

What a lovely piece, Freda! It certainly deserves to be displayed. I can't wait to see it framed. And you get the greatest treasures at those flea markets! I love that bug pin (you called it a bee - I think it looks like a ladybug). And all the lace. Sigh. But just wait until I blog about my finds at an estate sale this weekend! Two big items and a few smallish things. Have a wonderful weekend! Hugs, Cathy

Freda, is that piece partly applique? I enlarged it to see what sort of stitches they are, but I can't tell. It is a lovely piece of work anyway, and well deserving of a frame.
