Another tad

The landscape is getting closer and closer to being done!  I'm already planning the next one (oh, I'm SO fickle!!).    Here's the latest progress...




- I enjoyed reading about THIS so thought if you happened to own a fence you might like to do something similar.  

- There are some great sewing room hack tips HERE some of you might find interesting.

- I know I sent you a link to something similar to THIS before, but this one is a slightly different twist.  Wouldn't it make great little gifts for sewers in your life?

- THIS link to a great virtual quilt show (and the ability to vote on your favourites) came from my friend (thanks MEK!!!).  Be sure to click at the bottom to see more of the entries. 

Today's quote..."One thing no one ever talks about when it comes to being an adult is how much time we debate keeping a cardboard box because it's you know...a really good box"
Stay safe.  Stay well.
May cooler heads prevail.

    1. Thanks Julierose - that sky seemed to tell me that it needed clouds to be complete and who am I to argue!

  3. Hi Mary Anne,
    ....But it is a really good box ! :-)
    Well done on your picture, I like the fence too.
    You really are so talented - I know it'll make you blush, but it's true!.
    Best wishes, Val (UK)

    1. I found the cure for keeping perfectly good boxes - just move into an apartment with limited space (altho', to be completely truthful, I know of at least two boxes currently lurking in my sewing room!!). Thank you for the rosy glow I'm feeling right now.

  4. Love the clouds, which look three dimensional. The whole piece looks so realistic. I'll never be an adult if there are boxes to be kept. :-) I do recycle them though.

    1. The clouds are a bit dimensional actually, as is the snow in the very front. I suspect that being an adult is highly over-rated (but I wouldn't know from personal experience of course).

  5. Loving this, Mary Anne. It's feeling colder today. Must be the clouds? I know clouds normally mean the temps are a little warmer, but the visual of seeing clouds in the sky on a winter day can seem colder before stepping out into the actual weather. Very cool that just looking at your landscape gives me this sense.

    1. Hmmmm - I wonder if you've been imbibing a tad too much wobbly pop? Feeling cool just because you're looking at those clouds? Interesting!

    1. Thank you Kim! I'm happy that it's finished (final photos tomorrow!). And yes, the virtual gallery was great fun to explore.

  8. Your landscape looks great! And another coming soon? You're on a roll.
    Boxes? I used to like to collect yogurt containers. I washed them out and used them for all kinds of things from left over containers to seedling pots. I still like them but there's no room to keep them here.
    Someday!

    1. Yorgurt containers are handy for so many things too - at least they're stackable so take up a bit less space than what boxes do (even when they're flattened).

  9. Oh My this is gorgeous and so life-like. It is always special to have another project in mind while finishing up a current project. Motivation! This is too funny about the box...just yesterday I wanted to save a box and hubby of course wanted to throw it away!

    1. I always have several projects in mind so there's always lots of motivation to finish the current one. Good thing I don't allow myself to start a new one until I've finished what I'm working on - I shudder to think what my sewing room would look like then!

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.
