A Spring Garden

No, the snow hasn’t melted yet.  In fact, it continues to fall here in what I think must be the snow capital of the world.  The spring garden I’m writing about is a stitched garden.

In October, before I left the US, three of my friends and I took a class in Greensboro with teacher Catherine Jordan.

The project is a knot garden stitched on linen in Medici wool and hand dyed Anchor floss, with a small amount of fabric paint for emphasis. Catherine Jordan finished her piece as the top of a box that looks like a book. I thought my piece was lost in the move, but it has turned up and I am ready to work on it.
