1  Square Dancing Dish Towels in Needlework: Completed Projects by carolynjane on: February 23, 2005 02:59:55 PM
I found this square dance pattern in a bag full of old embroidery patterns in an antiques store a few years ago. Its probably from the 50s. When my friends Todd and Kathie got married last summer I made these for them. They live on Maui and love to square dance.

Yeah, the images are kinda old fashioned but I love the way the artist was able to capture the movement of the dancers... light hearted and fun.

There are 5 towels in all.











These were a LOT of fun to stitch! And Kathie and Todd loved them.

P.S. I ordered the towels from Embroider This (http://www.embroiderthis.com/mckito.html) The McLeod Tea Towels in White.  Excellent quality.

2  Embroidered portrait of The Twins in Sublime Stitching Embroidery by carolynjane on: October 05, 2004 09:49:43 AM
Hello Everyone,
I have been lurking here for over a month and finally got up enough nerve to post a picture of my latest embroidery project which was inspired by Jenny Hart -- my "embroidery idol". I happened across Jenny's web site over a year ago and was completely mesmerized by her embroidered portraits. I decided then to create one of my own based on a photo of my beloved twin sister Marilyn and myself when we were around 5 or 6. It measures 18 inches by 18 inches.

Here it is:



I got to meet Jenny at the Renegade Craft Fair in Chicago last month and it was such a thrill for me to get to "talk shop" with her. She is one amazing young woman and I can't believe I had the good fortune to finally meet her.

I have been embroidering since I was in high school (I turn 51 this month) and feel like I've found a whole new way to express myself with needle and floss since coming upon Jenny's portraits. (Do I sound like a groupie or what?)  Smiley

I hope you like the portrait.

Carolyn
