2017

August 21, 2017. In the Bay Area we affectionately refer to the month of August as “fogust” because, well, it's very, very foggy. If you come visit in August, don't expect any classic California beach days. So. The eclipse here... well to paraphrase how one local newspaper put it: this is a special event, it's just not our special event. I caught a tiny glimpse of the sun as a crescent through the clouds, but mostly it was fog. So a gray-green circle with a slight white outline captures the eclipse appropriately for me. Did anyone get to experience totality? #1yearofstitches #wip #embroidery #embroideryart #handembroidery #contemporaryembroidery #bordado #broderie #embroideryinstaguild #stitches #green #threaddoodle #deatil #deatilshot #zoom #belated #satinstitch #eclipse2017 #fogust #monday #mondaynight #thread #fiberart #sewing #textiles #textileart #art #needleandthread
