It's been a few days of laundry, grocery shopping, errands, doctor visits, etc but I am finally back to my usual groove. I did manage to come home with a sinus infection with a bad cough, so am on 5 different meds...... all but one short term. No wonder the pharmaceutical companies are making record profits!!! I have been stitching in the evenings and will share that a little later in the post.
I first wanted to share some beautiful beaded pieces from a museum featuring indigenous peoples. We visited this museum while in Banff. Here you go:
|Beaded Blanket strip
|Woven Quill Arm Bands
Things of beauty, aren't they?
Now to my stitching....I finished another Prairie Schooler Santa, year 2018. He is stitched on 40 ct. Dirty Newcastle linen over two.
I bought this pair of project bags on a FB page...aren't they cute? Evidently Lori Holt has some pre-printed panels you can use to make two different sizes of bags. I like the two way zipper on them.
To end, I want to share two interesting things I found on our trip. First was at O'Hare airport.....never seen anything like this before but sure wish it was around when my girls were babies.
The other thing were these wind diverters in Calgary...decorative but serving a purpose on the windy streets. There were colorful ribbons woven into the structures. You can the the huge spool where they originated from center left.
I think that's it for today.....thanks for stopping by and your "twisted threads" of friendship. Have a great weekend!
