I am getting ready to start on
a Pennsylvania German 'Quaker' Ball.
I love the finished look of a Quaker Ball...
26 pieces, all hand embroidered,
assembled, by hand, into a ball.
Hand dyed linen from Stitch N Stuff in Reading, PA
There are so many fabric choices...
I've settled on a 28ct. hand dyed linen.
The color is 'Cyprium'. Gorgeous !
I'll show my work as I move along on the project.
Still playing with the threads,
to see what will work.
We've had two GLORIOUS days of sunshine,
and tomorrow we're back into rain for the weekend.
I was able to walk the gardens today
and see what is coming along...other than weeds,
which love the **weeks and weeks** of rain
we have been having.
My Bronze Fennel has made it
through the winter.
The Monarch caterpillars love to feast on it,
during the summer. But I don't mind,
this plant will get 4-5 feet tall, bronze,
feathery and very bushy.
There will be plenty for me and the caterpillars !
May your weekend be filled with peace
and a little creativity...
