Finished Jackets

While I was busy stitching on my jacket every evening for the last 6 weeks, Claire and Ruthie were also working on theirs. We are all finished and wore them to a concert the other night.



Ruthie and Claire had not done embroidery in years, other than the 15 Million Stitches Project, and I thought they did  great job. Click on the picture for a bigger view, then click again for even more detail.


We also had a collage day one afternoon with a stack of magazines and catalogs, cutting, tearing and pasting onto 8" x 12" canvas boards. The theme for this month was Clouds.

Mine--She Always Has Her Head in the Clouds

Claire---Dancing in the Clouds

Ruthie---Stormy Weather


I am linking up with Off the Wall Friday.

Great jackets! But...how did you manage to stick to the backs, and not add a teensy bit on the fronts? ;-)

We did do a little stitching on the fronts, Margaret. If you click on the picture you will see it better.

I like the way you've carried the stars and flowers over the shoulder to continue the pattern! Great job ladies!
