Ribbons of Hope

This piece by Laura Perrin is a beauty! The foundation color is a new Watercolours called Primrose. Complementing this is a selection of Perle cottons, Neon Rays +, Petite Treasure Ribbon and gold beads. I'm planning to teach it in October, which is Breast Cancer Awareness month. A donation toward breast cancer research will be made for each student taking the class. Note the "pink" ribbons in the three large ribbons.

July was a productive month! I FINALLY, FINALLY finished stitching this piece taught by Tony Minieri at a Chicago ANG workshop three years ago. Still not happy with the clouds, but they're the best I could do.

In July I also finished the Heart-to-Heart design of the four red and gold dresses on black Congress cloth, a Christmas ornament, and put the finishing touches on two other projects.

Now I can get busy on a new piece called Ribbons of Hope, finish an ornament that's been in the works for a few months, and look for new projects. I'm declaring some UFO's NTBD's (never to be dones), which eases the guilt over what's left.
