I spent a few hours with Tracy today putting the finishing touches to the artichoke.

And here is the finished article!  It's been hard work, but worth it I think.  


  1. Deborah, I am still amazed at this artichoke! I was at Tracy's when you were finishing it up, I believe you still had one bit to go. I was working on my RSN crewel. Whenever someone starts talking to me about silk shading, I bring up your blog and show them this piece. It is absolutely stunning in the photos and even more beautiful in person! I'm working on my RSN silk shading now and keep looking at your photos trying to figure out how you have made it so smooth.
