Work in Progress. It's Wednesday Again!

Yes I do have more work started!  The trip to Lakewood Park left me with so many inspirational photos.  Having such a range of greens from Jane Evans makes my work much easier.  I have the right colors!

I have two other large pieces started as well as another small one. Here's a backdrop that I can't wait to start.  That gorgeous sky fabric was hand dyed and gifted to me by Heather Lair from Manitoba.  It's it sweet!?  Thank you Heather.

That will have a scene from a photo I took out at Grasswood after a tornado warning was lifted.

One last show & tell.  I'm multitasking here.  I need to work on samples - one for a Dresden class I'm teaching, and two for a guild presentation on a Thread class & the Hand Quilting class I took.  So here it is all in one!  : )  I love it.  I think it's turning out to be a fine sampler that will meet the needs of all three!


: )
I'm linking to The Needle And Thread Network, as well as WIP Wednesday at Lee's / Freshly Pieced.  Have a great day!

Lovely work Monica. Lovely picture too:) I was thinking of you yesterday when I got my newsletter from the Textile Museum of Canada. They always have various shows and exhibits going on. I wonder if they have calls for submission of work. Just a thought:)

Your first piece is going to be wonderful, as usual. Was the sky a painted one that you did? Very nice.
I love, love the Dresden plate! It is true that necessity is the mother of invention! Your choice of fabric along with the embroidery give it a sort of sweet modern flair.
