Most years I have entered a number of items in the Home Arts competition, in the knitting, spinning, and occasionally weaving categories. Since I really haven't done any knitting, spinning, or weaving to speak of since last year I don't have much. I have three pieces totally ready to go, all in embroidery of one kind or another…I have to figure out a whole new areas of categories.
|Embroidered triptych of a bee, a dragonfly, and a butterfly|
in matching saffron floss on black linen
|A tiny (about 4") blackwork piece of a geometric web with a|
tiny spider in the top right corner.
I do have one more blackwork piece finished in terms of embroidery. The question is whether I'll get it hemmed or not. At least I'm happy with these, I have something to enter, and if I don't win anything, it's fine, this is the first year I'm entering any of these areas.
