I did a whole lot of shows this summer. The last one this year ( I think) is in Fairfield, Iowa in October. I'd planned on using the Anti-Clematis piece I did earlier this year--recycling it from a show in Cedar Rapids. But it sold. That was great--but it meant I needed something new. I did this piece--it is about 9x10 inches of heavy embroidery in about a week. My right arm was SORE by Saturday. Sore from gripping a needle. I must be getting old.
