I've Been Working

I had a little panic attack when I looked at the calendar.  I have 2.5 weeks.  What if I don't have enough done in time!??  My husband laughs and tells me I say that EVERY time I have a deadline.  So I began to sew.  I had a moment of serious doubt with this one, but after I began embellishing the foreground, it just all sprang to life! First I quilted it all in free horizontal lines across.


The sky threads are variegated rayons, and the brown is metallic!  It came in a mixed set and I had no idea there was a metallic in there.  I couched some of my new funky fibres from Jesica onto there.  ; )

If you saw in yesterday's post, I quilted the spring field with sage green embroidery machine thread.  Then I did some silk ribbon embroidery by hand.  I put long grasses in the foreground and I stitched blue french knots in the spaces that were predominantly blue.  I did that until the blue ran out.


Next - some lavender colored blossoms were added mid ground.  There are also purple metallic threads that I seed stitched which really make the whole thing pop, and give it so much depth.  Now it looks like something I made.  ; ) 

photo taken on my phone.   not bad!!

Now... off to shop for a new camera.  You know my sweet boy who can read?  He dropped the camera and dislocated the entre inner lense casing.  It's garbage.  Darn.  I managed to knock it like a coke machine and made work for a bit so I could load some of my photos for today and tomorrow.

See you tomorrow for TIPS ON TUESDAYS!!  ; )  The topic is PAINTING OF FABRIC!  : )

Sorry to hear about the camera, but it's a good reason to get a new one! Like Flo I will look forward to seeing the complete landscape...
