Fishers of Men

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!

Be Still and Know

Here is my completed pulpit parament in memory of Lu. Dupioni silk with wool, silk and cotton floss. The work is approximately 22 x 32 inches.

This really WAS a joy to make in memory of a fabulous spitfire of a woman who made all those who met her feel they were heard and valued.

Workbasket: Baptismal Stole

I am continuing to make strides in wrapping up the baptismal stole. Pleased with the effects on the pressed smocked silk, I have added beaded treasures within the folds of the silk for a water effect. French knots complete the border.

A detail from a stole placed for purchase in my shop. The last of a gorgeous olive dupioni silk with white silk dove and hand-dyed thread.
