  1. Ooo . . fascinating. Stitching is calling to me! Too many mediums are enticing me.

  2. beautiful...but not risking any guesses, my US geography isn't THAT good, yet...

  3. Close's Portland Oregon.

  4. Make sure to take a look at the work of Aaron Koblin- and especially his work on flight patterns. I have an midway through a piece also on flight. You can take a look at
    Your work is breath taking. Judy

  5. Judy, thank you for the links. I adore your work and am intrigued with Aaron Koblin.
