Witch Hobble

Witch Hobble (or Hobblebush) is a small native shrub that grows in the understory of Northeastern hardwood forests.  It sports white clusters of very early spring blooms which ripen to bright purple-red berries in late summer.  The secondary vein structures in the leaves are unique and lend themselves to Kathy Loomis‘ technique for piecing very thin lines.

Check out Kathy’s tutorial if you’d like to see how it’s done.  If you’d like to see some of my process for this piece, go here.

Witch Hobble was made using hand-dyed cottons; pieced and appliqued (leaf edge), and measures 25″ x 25″.

    Very impressive. I didn’t realize that it was all pieced when I first saw the picture. I can’t wait to see it in person.

    Give as many details of the plumbing emergency as possible.
    Whenever possible, choose unleaded gasoline ffor your car.

    Pittsbvurgh plumbers hsve really earned my respect because they have to be ready to handle anything, and they are.

    As we all know that the population is expanding day by day,
    the advances in plumbing technology increases the ability of plumbers to
