Progress yesterday and today

I've made great progress this weekend, starting with the placement of the heart on the lower left panel.

The green, blue-green, and purple strips of necktie were stitched in swooping lines around the heart and then up towards the shoulders.

You can see that I piece most of the fronts and part of the back before cutting up the centre to separate the panels.
Tomorrow I'll make and attach the piping and lining.

  1. Dear Janet,
    I am absolutely speechless (a rarity for me!) watching my stole come alive on your blog. I've shown your blog to several close friends and family members, and each one said the very same thing - "It's you!"

    Not only are you a gifted artist, but your intuitive ability to recreate visually what someone else is trying to convey verbally, is a gift unto itself.

    My ordination is the culmination of a very long, sometimes arduous, spiritual journey. As I watch my stole come alive, I feel as though I'm watching my ministry coming alive as well.

    I am so delighted that I will be taking you and your energy with me to many, many sacred occasions.

    May your work continue to touch and inspire others, as it has touched and inspired me.

    Much love,

    I feel so blessed, Janet, to have connected with you. Knowing the loving energy you have poured into this garment
