San Francisco School of Needlework and Design

I made this for the "Jewels of the Sea" Challenge by the San Francisco School of Needlework and Design, and it is there on display until March 4. The address is 360 Post Street, Suite 604. I am told it is across from Union Square. There's a reception/party next Saturday from 11-4, and I will be there, come hell or high water! Which may be the case, because there is a lot of rain going on up there and flooding in some places.

I've been trying to post these fun photos of my mom and granddaughter but the phone has been temperamental.

Valentina photos

I have been having problems posting blog posts on my phone. Fingers are crossed that I can succeed via the iPad! These are photos from a recent visit with Warren and Valentina, plus a dress that I recently sewed for her. Val is turning one in about a week!

A last fond look at Heirloom Meadows Farm

The last photos from our visit to Central NY in August. I loved this photo of Sammy holding a chicken! There is a photo of my mother holding a chicken as a girl; I will try to add it later. 

Here Sammy us modeling a dress that I made her. It's the Oliver and S Jumprope dress. Years ago I made one in size 3, and I liked it so much I made it in size 6. 

One of their beautiful chickens. I used to know the names of the varieties.
