|holding my breath... Mandy hasn't seen a full shot of this yet!|
In case you are confused about the images, the setting sun represents father (fabric from a wrap), the silk moon is mother (from a mei tei carrier), and the two stars are the boys (from a pair or woven booties). The sky is made of two baby carries. The lightest leaves are also from a stretchy wrap. It's been SLOOOOW going on my part, but I think it's turning out really good. This one had a lot of contemplation time.
I really made some progress on Kate's wall hanging yesterday. It has a lot of detailing that I'm so very happy with. I like to pull viewers in. So here is the large remake of "Telephone Poles on Highway 7", minus the telephone poles. ; )

And as I'm working away, I had a great idea for Jesica's quilt. The centre is a gradation of colored half square triangles alternating with white ones. The lower left is black, which moves like a rainbow until the top right corner is white. It will be bordered with wide white. Then I'll do another border of a single row of HSTs so that the color scheme is reversed. This way it will balance the whole look of the quilt. In the wide white border, I'll free motion stitch some symbols that remind Jesica of her grandmother. I may just do that in white. But that's a ways off right now. I have time to think about it.
And to all you who comment/follow on my blog... PROMISE me you'll come back on Sunday. I have a very special surprise for YOU. : )
still listening to the birds sing.
