You will have to just wait and see what this becomes.

Flowers in my Garden

I needed an early spring this year, so I got out a picture of asters and sedum that I took in my yard last fall and embroidered it. It is still not done, as you can see. But it is, at least, bright.

A Wretched Cornfield

This is the third on my list of current, unfinished projects. I had it almost all done in golds and decided it was way too boring. So, I unpicked the whole thing and redid it in browns, oranges and magenta. I may have gone too far. It is still not done, but when I was working on it in the middle of January I just couldn't take any more winter, so I am thinking that sometime in July or August when I am craving cold, maybe it will be more appealing. And maybe it will just never turn out. We will see.

Piano Bag

A piano bag I made for my daughter Sandra for Christmas. It is to carry music in--not the piano. It is kind of heavy embroidery on corduroy. I meant it to be bachelor's buttons. My mom says it is chives.

At the Conference Center

Another of my corn field pictures was juried into the LDS Church Art Competition show. The opening reception ended up being the same week as spring break, so we went. This is not a great view of me or my picture, but at least you can see that we were really there. It will be on display at the LDS Conference Center in Salt Lake City through the middle of October.


I had a bunch of things framed in January. Here is the corn field picture that I sold to my neighbor, Jon. I think the framing turned out rather nice.
