There is a lot of handstitching hiding in here. I added some pale dry green here and there - remnants of summer past. The white puffs are marigolds gone to seed mixed in with dry, dry sage. The bright orange bits are the leaves and fruit of the wild roses that filled the field. I had it at the framers today and the one we picked will just pazow! this piece. You know... PAZOW! : ) At least that is how I would explain it. -sigh- I am so excited to see it done!
Now is when the pieces I have started will need to move toward completion. I think this one will get purples by the roadside, yellows in the end of the field, and teeny bits of baby blue down in the grass. We'll see how this goes. This one is a bit of an experiment.

While I sat in a hallway at the University waiting for my boys tonight, I sorted through some of my photos on my laptop. I forgot about a whole pile of them - the day I went out in search of flax, and the time spent at Jackfish Lake. I took thousands and thousands this year. Some of them are nagging at me, but I won't have time (nor sanity) to get any more done before this month ends. Still... here's one I forgot about.
Sometimes my family laughs at me saying, "your stitching looks real and your photos look fake". That's funny - but I do admit that last photo looks unreal. Linking to WIP Wednesday at TN&TN... one of my favorite places to check out other bloggers.
Have a good day!
