Last night I pulled out a project that I started at the end of last year - With My Needle from Goode Huswife. I worked on the verse. I'm stitching it from the bottom up!
Tonight I will likely stitch on something else.
I want to share something else with you. Amy Mitten recently announced her latest sampler in the Around the World series. She said that she did something to the linen to make it look like birch bark. This reminded me of a piece of art I purchased in British Columbia on a visit there in the 90's.
This is called birch bark biting. Ojibwa Indians would fold pieces of birch bark and then bite down on it with their teeth to create designs in the bark.
The artist for this piece was Angelique Levac. According to Wikipedia, there are only about a dozen people left in Canada and the U.S. who still create this art form.
Off to my stitching chair!
