This time of year always seems to be a whirlwind. Our ballet season ends tomorrow and then I am off to a summer in Santa Fe playing for the opera. I am hoping to complete many stitching projects during my time there when I am not focusing on Salome and learning all of the repertoire for next season’s opera and ballet here in Houston.
If any stitchers who will be in Santa Fe this summer are reading this, contact me at the opera. I really enjoy stitching together and would love to join you.
I am almost finished stitching St. Nicholas from my Victoriana series. I have the miter, face and beard to go. It will be a hanging ornament, probably with a gold tassel at the bottom. Of the 12 original designs for that series, Big Ben, the Coldstream Guard and the Camel Carousel seem to be the front runners. I’ve been busy designing some new canvases for Victoriana that I hope you will enjoy.
Wishing you all a happy summer of stitching! Joan
