I'm only going to show you two pieces today because they are each worthy of a long look and consideration.
The first one is the Red Lady Pirate sent in by Lori. I think she turned out (as Lori would say) EPIC. Lori had the foresight to send me some of the "treasures" to work with on the embellishment phase of the process.
I thought the doubloon was genius. What a great team we make! I don't know Lori very well, but I suspect
she's somewhat of a swashbuckling pirate lady herself.
The next piece was stitched by Darlene. Around here we call her Darlene the Machine. This is just one of many masterpieces Darlene has sent our way. I wish you could see the intense detail on this piece. The iridescent touches are delicious. The crazy thing about this project is how generous Darlene is. This piece was a given as a gift to her friend Pam. Pam, you must be an extraordinary person to have someone bless you with such a gift.
Happy Easter to all of you.
