Come along on a pictorial diversion and you can see where I went with this longing...
|some heavy cotton canvas on good and tight to a frame|
|pieces of stabilizer and fabric on top|
|some hand dyed 'uncommon supplies' that i needle felted on top|
|i stitched and stitched and stitched by hand on all three for about 13 hours (noon to 1 am)|
It was very late when I stopped. In fact, it was past midnight and I know I prepared that frame late that morning. It's like I was in a zone and unable to leave it until my unknown project was complete. Usually I take lots of breaks. Finally it was complete. My family were all upstairs, sound asleep. I went up to join them.

I woke up the next morning, long after the sun had come up. I sat up, had a good stretch, splashed some water on my face and came back down to my mainfloor workspace. Would you believe what I saw!? The 'study in dirt' had come alive overnight. ; )
