A breath of fresh air.

I've made an executive decision this week to not show you everything we got finished. I'll post them next weekend. The pieces I am showing are so amazing that they deserve to be admired carefully and slowly.  All three are the work of the same needleworker, Arlene Lewis.  What fun we had this week!  For most of us it would take a lifetime to complete just one of these pieces yet she showed up at my door carrying all three (with plans for more in the future).   Arlene, it was a sheer joy to meet you and your charming husband.  I think we collaborated well together and I'm very proud of the final result.  I'll be delighted to frame your future projects.
And now the grand unveiling...

Hi Jill....We made it home and now we have the tough decision about where to put these babies.. I can't express how happy I was to meet you and have you put the 'finesse' on my needlework. All 3 are PERFECT and the whole process was so much more then just getting some things framed. Thanks sooo much and we'll definitely see you in a couple of years..

Hugs
Arlene

Seriously? Those are incredible! Arlene you did a fantastic job on the stitching. I can tell we like the same strange...I mean "Whimsical" type of art. Jill! You really out-did yourself on these. I would love to have all three hanging in my home. Gimme, gimme.

I was not sure if it was a cat or not, but I thought it was a cat and I was right.
