Round Robin Jacket, View from the Deck

In November of 2007, a group of us began a wearable art round robin. My jacket just came home, and though not everyone got to work on it, I'm really pleased with it. When it started, I'd sewn just the blank purple wool felt jacket. All the embellishments, including the (lined) green ultrasuede collar were added by the other artists. Shown here are the jacket front (including much detail around the pockets from three different artists), back (applique by one person), and a little beaded person brooch that came home with the jacket.

Sitting at the table on the deck I leaned my head back to admire the gorgeous, cloudless blue sky, and noticed just how tall that pine is that fills our gutters with needles! It also seems to be loaded with pine cones at the top.
Aren't zoom cameras wonderful? It is definitely LOADED with pine cones!

Beautiful shot of the pine cones. That jacket is lovely.

Really neat, Sue! Do you know if the same person who did the back circles did the collar? They work well together....
