Jan Hicks Creates – Flosstube #50 – Cross Stitch WIP Parade for Stitch Maynia 2019

Started working on Shades of Gold by Northern Expressions Needlearts after reskeining the large skeins of silk from Missus Sedas into smaller, more mangeable skeins for stitching.

Concerned about climate change and the effect it’s having on our world? I have come across an organization that has put out a call for people to contribute to adding to the understanding and knowledge of climate change, using knitting or crochet as a medium to create a visual representation. This organization, called the Tempestry Project, has teamed up with the National Parks something something to help raise awareness of the impact of climate change on National Parks. You can learn more about it here: National Park Tempestry Project.
Want to join me and knit or crochet a National Park Tempestry Project? I have chosen Haleakala National Park. What Park will you choose? National Park Tempestry Kits
