That last walk out at Chief Whitecap Park with my dog put me in such an amazing mood. I put my images up on the computer to use as reference and start building the background colours up with fabric and thread.
The next photo is a work in progress with a mat just to see how things are filling in. I keep an extra one nearby while I'm sewing so I can keep checking my progress.

Now I'm ready for hand stitching. But wait! It's been so long since I've ran my machine, I had to keep working on more. I figure I can spend a couple days later on just finishing the hand work on all of them...
Pictured above is on older photo I took out there last summer. I've been hanging on to it for a while, knowing some day I would stitch it. I just love the blending of colours in it - the shades of green and the plops of yellow.
Here it is in progress - the machine work is all done and the rest I will also do by hand.

Oooh I love how this one is working out. I feel like once the stems are in, it will be just perfect.
There you go - I feel caught up with show and tell after a couple of quiet months building the studio. It is amazing to have all the threads and supplies organized and at hand. I forgot how much I love threadpainting. : ) I have lots more on the go... Talk soon!
