Hello Hello Hellllllloooo! I’m finished with my series of 10 Fab Femmes. Above are the last two embroideries in my series. Scott chose Bonnie and our son, chose Karen Carpenter! I asked around and found out that Karen is extremely popular among musicians for her drumming skills.
I was stuck for a hair colors for Barbra and Joni. I still had a tiny amount of Katia’s sand colored yarn. I thought it was a good choice.
I was looking up yarns for Joni and I wanted blonde and brown streaks as photos showed Joni’s hair to look during her active years. I don’t remember where I saw Wolle’s Yarn Creations, but that is where I found the most interesting yarn called “Sand Dunes” to use for Joni.
I did mix in some soft yellow crochet thread where the light might’ve shown on Joni’s head but the rest is this fun yarn. I really love the gradient shades . For the peachy tones, I took threads from one side and for the darker shades, I took threads from the other side. I’ve used thread from both sides now and win or lose, I still somehow… sorry, caught up in lyrics from these Divas!
I’m going to go back and check out what else is up. I’m excited! Check it out @ http://wollesyarncreations.com
As you may guess, I have a bunch of yarn to put away and then, I need to prepare my Kaleidoscope Girl canvas to bring to the gallery in North Beach, San Francisco.
Cheers! I’ll be back soon!
