|Floral Road 2, 2013|
This was a commission I picked up from the July show at my mother's home this summer. It's different from Floral Road 1 in that it has less blonde grasses and I've added some blue flowers in the ditch. I will post a straight-on shot of this once it's matted.
This next one wasn't a commission, but something I was longing to do after the beautiful fall field trips to Cranberry Flats.
This is a larger version of a little wee piece I sold last year. I take great pride stitching out all those grasses by hand over the free machine work. : ))) It brings me right back to that moment. The grass indeed was soooo long and every stitch was done with pure joy. : )))
I also completely finished this one of the hills at Jackfish Lake. It has hand stitched silk ribbons in the foreground. It's off to frame this week.

I know you've seen that one before. That may be why I was reluctant to blog. I don't want to bore anyone with the same old - same old. Speaking of which, here's more canola! haha FINALLY. It's from the photo I took this summer at Jackfish after a big storm. It's STILL a work in progress, but I am happy to finally be finished all those French Knots. I start this baby in early September. You are looking at it pretty close to actual size (well, unless you are on your little phone).

Fianlly, I have this little one that is for someone overseas, however, I think I will try one more autumn scene for the buyer to choose from. I was going to frame this little wee one myself but it doesn't look quite right in the frame color I have on hand. Isn't that always the way!?

I do really like the fence wire and the curly dock in the ditches. We'll see what else I can come up with before the end of the week! : ) Linking up to Work-In-Progress Wednesday at The Needle & Thread Network.
Well - that should make up for all the non-blogging! lol Hope that satisfies.
