A Gallery of Works

I'm just playing a little catch-up on my blog today, adding some photos of things I have done over the past two to three years.

One of a set of pinwheel towels. For this one, I changed out some of the green stripes and substituted dark brown.

Johanna D's No. 32 from Marguerite P. Davison's pattern book, pg. 97.
My inspiration for the pillows, on the reverse side.  They were needlepoint stitched by my grandmother, Gladys Truscott Hobbs, back in the 1970's.  The backing was deteriorated, so I wove new fabric to replace the old.

A very fine wool scarf.
