|so far so good.|
I got pretty excited that it was working! Just the right shades of grey here and there and the building is now officially done. : )
|omg - i did it|
I hand stitched some more grasses with thread and hand dyed silk ribbons. It's nearly done now. I can't wait to show you the luscious foreground! I showed the building to my husband and he said it creeped him out. "What!?" I asked. He replied, "Zombies! It looks like buildings in the Zombie games!" haha. Leave it to a gamer...
I still have eight more pieces to make for Winnipeg. Crunch time! I am running out of sky, so I popped in to Periwinkle for some solids I thought I might try to paint with the Jaquard dyes.
I stayed up late after the kids were in bed and dyed some silk ribbons for the Bergheim piece. Dying ribbon is so quick & easy. I dye ribbons that are already colored and they turn out so natural looking. I love the results.
Stitch - stitch - stitch ... see you soon! Linking to WIP Wednesday at the Needle & Thread Network.
