“Lee Kimono -- October 6, 2009”



This is a Lee mini-kimono which our daughter finished stitching last spring. Yes, it took me a while to send it off to be professionally finished into its kimono shape but we were rather busy this summer! :-)

I think this was only her third or fourth canvas that she finished stitching. It’s now in our display cabinet for all to enjoy!

Thanks for stopping by to visit us! I hope you are having a wonderful and healthy fall! The leaves are falling here at Windy Meadow and yes it’s getting rather windy. LOL!

Beautiful. Nice when the next generation picks up the art.

Wow! That is really neat. Talent with the needle and thread must run in the family.

Your daughter is a wonderful stitcher! Thanks for the info on the bottle caps. My librarian has already started collecting metal ones...I will have to tell her you used plastic. That accounts for the wide variety of color.
Have you started the Heart of the Cabin? What are your color choices?

Hi Cyn,
What a lovely kimono, and beautifully finished too. It is wonderful that your dd has an interest in stitching too. An in house stitching partner, it doesn't get much better than that! Happy Fall to you and yours.

Love the kimono-- kudos to your daughter. I've done a few of these and I just love them.

Say, aren't you excited that Lee's business got bought? I was gfoing to cry if we lost those purses and canvases.
