Texas Boots

Texas Boots made its debut at Destination Dallas in September. As you can see in the photo, I am having fun stitching it. I am using Memory Thread and Alpaca and Rainbow Linen and Neon Rays and all kind of fibers to vary the textures.

Each boot features different aspects of life in Texas, from a horny toad to the Alamo to the yellow rose, bluebonnets, mockingbird, longhorn steer and armadillo. There is even a scorpion tail coming out of the top of the “A” boot. As a child, even here in Houston, I learned to always shake out boots and shoes that had overnighted in the garage, just in case a scorpion had spent the night there.

I had fun designing different boot patterns, resulting in feminine “T” and “A” boots and rougher work boots such as “E”.

The canvas measures approx. 20″ x 12″ on 18 count.

The border “frame” is a double brick stitch of Glazed Ginger Vineyard Silk interwoven with Silk Lame’ Braid. Just inside this frame will be barbed wire surrounding the boots.

Have a great day, your Texas stitchin’ friend, Joan
