Vacation & Blackwork Dancer
Just a quick note to let you know I won't be posting for another week or so. We are on vacation, driving up the Coast. We are in Oregon now, heading to Washington tomorrow. Then to Vancouver and East through the Canadian Rockies to Lake Louise & Banff. Then back to Reno for a couple of days and then to Las Vegas for the winter.
In the meantime, here is my Blackwork Dancer. She is adapted from a circus poster of an acrobat. Turned her upside down and she became a dancer. I did this about 20 years ago. At that time there were no circular blackwork patterns so I had to invent them. I had a good time with it and she won a ribbon in a needlework exhibit in San Diego.
