Beauport Stitches

a crafty port of call

Stitching My Hometown

I live in a beautiful area, right on the water – {well not me, I can see the harbor though from my upstairs window}  – and it has inspired me to capture some of my favorite views and objects in and around my seaside town of Gloucester, MA through embroidery.

The lower left is my version of Ten Pound Island in Gloucester Harbor.  Easy to boat or row out to.  The lower right is the old Bird’s Eye Building, where Clarence Birdseye perfected his frozen food process.  It was demolished last year to make room for a new hotel.

Enjoy this little glimpse of my hometown and if you embroidered your favorite hometown spots, let me know.  I would love to see them.
