I left Tennessee with it still feeling like Summer and came back 5 days later to Fall. The slow, colorful turn towards cool weather and dry air is welcome and beautiful. I left Roman stringing words together, almost all of it in the tone of a question (like, do I have this right?) and I came back 5 days later to some very concise sentences with not a hint of waver or question in his voice. I left the studio with a calm feeling of getting prepared for Quilt Market at just the right pace, and came back 5 days later feeling 2 months behind (???).
But it is good. Bon. Bonne? Not done yet! I'm sharing a glimpse of a velveteen + embroidery project. I am working on two embroidery collections to be released before the end of the year, and hopefully to be previewed as in depth as possible at market. Embroidering in a hurry is the paradoxical happiness/stress that I have found myself in several times over the past months. But somehow pairing embroidery with anything is keeping me intact.
happy stitches xoxoxoAM
