|in progress: Flax at Jackfish (mini), Canola / Highway 16, and Bloom 4|
The only thing missing is the flowers. I'll do all those by hand - a field of blue flax and yellow canola all in french knots, and then bloom will be full of handstitched alfalfa, wild clover, and blanket flowers. Sweet! The edges are done on this one, and the stray threads all cleaned up. I managed to photograph this in a better light, so the colors are pretty true to the real thing. It's about 7x9".

I haven't touched Megan's "Denmark" piece yet. I have the background fabric ready and mapped out, but I'm still staring at those trees and trying to get the nerve to begin. I know once I start, it will all come together easily. It's a matter of having a chunk of time to myself though!
Sweet! I looked on my calendar to see what was up and I had forgotten that I signed up for a two part class at the Studio on 9th! It begins today. I had a moment of, "oh crap, now i have to lug that big heavy machine back and forth," until I realized that it's a Hand Quilting Class! Haha! I'm VERY excited to do this one. I adore handstitching. This is the last part of the scholarship money from the Saskatoon Quilters' Guild and possibly the best part for me! Immediately following the class, I need to head to the university to meet our USCAD group & plan out tomorrow's exhibition! I'll post more on that tomorrow, along with a map if you plan on coming. : )
Please drop by next week for sure. It's party time at My Sweet Prairie, and I have LOADS of giveaways! I love this time of year. It's my birthday soon, my daughter's, my mother's, our 14th anniversary, Mother's day... I'm feeling festive. : )
Linking to TN&TN for WIP Wednesday...
Have a good one!
