A little something from Alaska

These mementos of Alaska are about 3" diameter, hand embroidered with perle cotton on felted wool, then bead embellished and edged with picot stitch using more perle cotton.

It's that time of year and the salmon are running

These are the tools of my silk screening trade:  screen, textile screen printing paint by Jacquard, freezer paper design stencil, squeegee especially made for printing fabric, thin foam sheet and scrap newsprint for a cushion to print on, and hand-dyed cotton pimatex fabric as a substrate.
