I would never in a thousand million trillion (lots & lots) years EVER get into one of these things, but I can certainly appreciate their beauty from good old solid terra firma. This was taken just a few minutes ago from our back door. I actually made some headway on my TIF piece today. For some reason this piece is being very hard to get along with, at least for me. I'm not a huge fan of brown so that might be some of the problem but I don't think that's totally it. You see the plaid-ish looking part at the mid-top? Methinks I will be ripping what I've done there out because it's just fading away into the busyness of the fabric. The rusty area on the left isn't making me have heart palpitations either. I think the embroidery is too airy-fairy and should be more stand-up-and-be-counted. What do you think? Please click on the picture to enlarge and give me your suggestions. Any and all will be taken into consideration. Thanks a bunch!
