handwrought Simple Joys

I thought I'd share a few sneak peeks of the things I'm working on. Items that are elaborately embroidered with silk ribbon are absolutely beautiful, however I haven't done too many fancy pieces. For some reason, I tend to gravitate towards the simple, pared down look ~ though you wouldn't think that when you visit my home! What you see are Simple Joys, nothing grand, but little things that bring a smile to my face and hopefully to yours.
There's not a lot to talk about today, and I should get back to work. I have coneflowers, beebalm, ferns, snowdrops, daisies, bleeding hearts, sunflowers, hummingbirds, honeybees, and dragonflies flowing from my fingers to the fabrics and I'd better work while they flow so freely!
These items (and many, many more) will be available in my booth at the Lavender Festival in Oak Ridge on June 20th.
~enjoy!~
