A little more done

I've been able to spend a couple of days at home so got a bit more done on the latest barn....

And here's a close up so you can see some of the details
(you can click to embiggen if you'd like)

- There's a good chart HERE to give you a general idea of how much yarn is required to make all sorts of different projects.

- I know THIS is a commercial site, but the creations made me smile so I thought you might like to see them too.

- Just a note to let you know that Kathy Shaw has opened registrations for her  FREE online class 'Silk Embroidery and More' and you can get details HERE.  Better hurry though, because registration closes tomorrow!

- One of the little-known facts about me is that I love stained glass so I found the work of THIS artist amazing.

  1. I love how you seem to paint with fabric. Love that fence.

  2. Mary Anne Dear you are the Queen of Fabric Barn quilts. I love this. Super fun Bug Art and beautiful Stained Glass. I really must learn the right words to use. <3

    Hi Maryanne this barn is awesome,you are so clever,well done my friend xx

  5. Really like the fence and the spring look of the flowers.

  6. Your barn work is amazing. Especially love all the detail going into this one.

  7. Lorraine above calls what you do "painting with fabric". What a perfect description. I love your fence in the pictures above. I'm amazed that you could "see" that fence as you were designing this block, but also that you could make your stitches look so accurately representational of an actual fence. Lovely, Mary Anne.

  8. MA, your barns just keep getting better and better! How many have you done? Are you going to continue with more? I really love them, especially the way you are able to capture the colors of aging wood.

  9. Your fence with the wild flowers is wonderful. Lots of beautiful details, the colors in the sky and field are perfect.
    Good progress Mary Ann.

  10. beautiful and so creative. really enjoying your barn series. I am off into upcycling.

  11. the details in these pieces are fabulous


Thank you so much for leaving comments! I appreciate you taking the time out of your busy life to talk to me. It's wonderful to know that someone is actually reading my mumblings and even more fun if I can connect with you and visit your blog.
