I'm going to attempt something new for me: finishing projects before I begin new ones! YIKES!!! Did I just say that?
I'm calling this my Squam Tee, as I did so much hand embellishing while we were at the lake.
Here's a detail shot of the front:
This is the back, which I really adore
My blog buddy Elizabeth encouraged me to go visit her New Hampshire fiber artist friend Patti while we were on vacation. So K and I took an afternoon off to shop. I wanted to go to Patti's shop, Badger Brook Farm in Gilmanton, and K wanted to find an old map of Sandwich at the town's historical society, so we set out last Tuesday afternoon right after lunch and spent some quality time together. K got her map and then we met up with Patti, had a great time buying all sorts of specialty fibers in her fabulous shop, and then she took me upstairs to see her private studio: man oh man, what an inspiration! So, how did we get from the subject of the Squam Tee to Patti's studio??? Well, lemme see now..........I used some of her yummy hand-dyed embroidery floss to embellish my tee and I viewed a gazillion antique MOP buttons in her studio.....but they were not for sale!
