I wanted to share two embroideries I created for a lovely fundraiser called "Circle of Art" in Saline, Michigan.





You may be thinking to yourself - those are the same two pictures, but one is really dark. You would be almost correct!

For the fundraiser, artists were invited to submit two pieces which will then be auctioned at an event and the proceeds will go to a local food bank. I decided to go with two pieces that were variations on a theme. They are both my design, and slightly different. Part 1 is worked in a grey and violet colorway, and Part 2 is worked in a grey and blue colorway. I think I like the violet better.  Cheesy

If you would like more info on this great charity event, including bidding on the artwork online, visit their website at http://www.salinepictureframe.com/circle-of-art.php

I also blogged this at: http://katiesredumbrella.blogspot.com/2010/04/circle-of-art.html

Are these framed pieces? The violet piece kind of looks like it was worked on denim. Love the colors! Smiley

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

I did not frame them, but as part of the "fundraising" of the event, all the pieces will be matted by a framing shop. So whoever wins them will have a lovely, professional piece!

Both pieces are so nice. I really like the light background one. But the dark is pretty too. Great idea for a fundraiser.

I'm looking for inspiration and motivation to jump into embroidery...never done it but have cross-stitched for many, many years (along with other crafts).  This is the type of project that inspires.  Thanks for sharing.
