Lori Seavey-Christian brought these wonderful embroideries to Artfiberfest for us to purchase.
They are from the Wodaabe tribe in Africa and they sell their work to provide some of the bare necessities of life. Lori also collected embroidery thread to send to the Wodaabe to help support their stitching. I bought four pieces similar to the ones above....love the fun colors and tiny stitches. I think she still has some to sell....ask her...her blog: http://artand play.blogspot.com/
Hooked this little pumpkin the other night just because I wanted to get hooking again! I still am working on my big piece "Flowerbox" but wanted something simple to get me going again.
And this great little book just arrived from Amazon. Very Inspiring!
And my copy of STUFFED! arrived and I have not 5, but 1 piece in there....the very last one...my little bug pin cushion...
