I spent the weekend in Seattle with JCN. We hung up her drapes, which are silk and called Poppy, but the color really looks like raspberries. I was somewhat inspired by the embroidery of Riita-Liisa Havisto of Finland, which was on display, with her daughter’s work at the Nordic Heritage Museum. You can see an announcement at http://www.nordicmuseum.org/index.php?t=events&c=full&e=156 or find much about their work using this search.

The detail fo the stitching was wonderful. It made me want to do hand stitching.
