Goodbye to Cedar Key!

 Its time to go home but it is difficult to say goodbye to tropical breezes, wonderful sunsets and new friends. I have been blessed with meeting such wonderful people here in Cedar Key. I've had lots of time for making art. This piece is nearly finished. I will need my tools at home to finish it.

 A cloth doodle I made for my friend Jane as a thank you gift . I used linens I bought in a consignment shop in Cedar Key. The cross stitch was made by a local woman who had passed away.

 Close up of the Cloth Doodle showing the hand stitching.
 Another gift for Barbara from Chicago.

 A gift for Pat from Virginia.
The cute little gift tags I bought at a local artist's co-op.

 I also worked on this little stitchery. I painted the cross stitch fabrics and lace with acrylic paint. I am adding embroidery, beads and maybe sequins. The idea is based on the art of Paul Klee and from Stitch Magazine.
My friend thinks it looks Russian.

Lastly a close up of my Shell piece. I haven't decided on a name yet.

Sounds like you had a lovely time again and produced some fabulous pieces. The little stitchery is gorgeous and I can see why your friend thinks it looks Russian.
