Today is my favorite day of the year, the Summer Solstice. Why? It is the longest day of the year and I love all the daylight hours, a great time for stitching.
Today was also Diane Clements' birthday and today I would like to celebrate Diane's needlework.
I have posted a tribute to Diane on my website and if you travel there you will see so many photos of her wonderful needlework. Diane specialized in whitework and Reticella, and she was a master of the difficult technique.
To see Diane's work: www.GayAnnRogers.com.
The needlework world lost Diane in May this year and we will greatly miss her and her wonderful way with a needle.
So today I hope you and your needle will join me and my needle as we pay tribute to a wonderful stitcher.
Happy first day of summer.
