Northern California ... The only thing missing is Bigfoot

I live in a place that is magical. A place where the Pacific Ocean and the Redwoods meet. Where nature is abundant, dirt roads still exist and it's not uncommon to see your neighbor riding a horse to check their mail.

Trees that touch the clouds. Hidden from the rest of the world. Unspoiled by man.


I live in paradise. The Emerald Triangle. The Lost Coast. Where do you live?

Eastern Indian Embroidery

This was designed and hand stitched by Charity McAllister ( me )
It has also been featured on Mr. X-stitch.

It took me approximately  six months to finish. It all started with a book from my local library.I was studying Eastern Indian Fiber Art and decided I needed to own one of these handmade masterpieces. Since I am a 'do-it-myself ' kind of gal, I gathered all the supplies I thought I would need and began my journey into the Eastern Indian embroidery

All the pictures on this piece are hand drawn and open to interpretation.
