These are pieces that I have finished over the years. These are not ALL the
pieces I have done, but only the ones I have access to, or can find images off. Where noted, these are scans right from
the stitched piece. In many cases, the piece was too large for my scanner, so I have also included an image either scanned
from the package, or obtained elsewhere from the Web. In some circumstances, I no longer have the finished piece, so
have simply put in an image obtained elsewhere.

This is a piece of crewel embroidery that was completed when I was back
in high school. Most of it was stitched while I was back stage of many drama performances, between my appearances on
stage. I remember how the other performers would ask me over and over again how I could be calm enough to do sewing...
and couldn't understand when I said that it was the sewing that calmed me! This was a kit from Dimensions.
