I will be teaching this Pat Mazu design, Flower of Hope to my Embroiderers' Guild (Manhattan) Chapter in November. I just finished stitching around the top of the little stocking to show its shape as I won't have it finished until after I teach it.Pat's original colorway for the piece is in pinks as she designed and stitched for a friend who has been diagnosed with breast cancer. She also offered a blue variation. Both of these can be seen in the March/April issue of Needlepoint Now. Of course I couldn't leave well enough alone and decided to try another colorway, just to show my group that it can be done. I am rather pleased with the way it came out....what do you think?
For those of you in the Northeastern part of the US, try to stay dry, and for those of you in Texas, well, "how I wish it would rain."
Until next time...................................Grandma
