Kayaking brings me deep enjoyment and peace, and so often I am kept company by the many herons that populate the many lakes nearby. Hopefully, this conveys that peace.

A commission to embellish a dalmatic, the design being a classic chi rho, measuring about nine inches square. I couldn't resist stitching just a bit to see if the thread color worked on this bright white!
Such tiny stitches and a lot of real estate! :)

I love this happy design, and each one I do has its own personality. On this particular one, I created a denser effect with the pearls and crystals at the base. A custom order with a shortened length, it plays well with the sparse amount of crystals as it moves upward.

A bit of detail from the finished baptismal stole. A mix of watery blue dupioni smocked and bordered with french knots on a sandy cream background. Within the folds of silk are hidden beadwork and treasures. Appliquéd shell on the back of the neck is trimmed in varigated Egyptian cotton thread. All work is done by hand.

I had a great time designing this tea green stole with hand embroidered koi. I was going for something a bit different and am pleased with how the three tones of varigated thread play against one another on the silk.
The silk has a great glow under lights and is now available in my etsy shop for immediate purchase!
