Yet another beginning

I got a start at the next landscape and we'll see where it goes from here...



- THESE are absolutely perfect for summertime!

- If you have a bunch of 2 1/2" fabrics strips and wonder what to do with them, why not check out the myriad of ideas found HERE.

- THIS is a cute little project that would use up scraps from your stash.  While you're there, perhaps you might like to look through the other pages of free tutorials available.  Go HERE to see those.

- Most of you know I like denim so of course THESE caught my eye.

Today the quote is from Ashley Hetherington.."In stressful times, it's okay to not be perfect.  It's okay to cut yourself some slack, because right now you might not be your best self.  But you are growing and you are trying your best and that is good enough"

  1. Goodness you've done a lot of work on the new piece. I'd love to know how you did the roof shingles or is that an artistic secret :)

    1. Nope, not a secret at all! It's actually fabric that came printed like that. Have no clue where I got it though.

    1. I agree - those dogs are amazing. Not what is on my radar to create myself but I do love them!

  3. Do you follow the Furry Gnome blog? It's lovely, and today he posted pictures of the landscape around his southern Ontario home, including a wonderful ancient barn, covered in foliage and just a great subject. I thought of you right away. He takes his own pix, so if you're interested he can give permission.

    1. It would be fun to attempt making something similar with denim but my days for working with it are past, sadly.

  7. Great beginning for this new landscape. Those denim pieces are well done. This quote is perfect for these new normal days that are anything but normal.

    1. It's a start anyway - we'll see where it goes from here. There was a time when I would have attempted doing something like that with denim but it's not something my hands are willing to tackle now.

    1. Me too! It generally ends up telling me where it wants to go so we'll see what happens.

  9. It's a great start! Is the roof a print fabric? It looks wonderfully dimensional!

    1. Yes that precious little piece of 'roof' is pre printed fabric. Alas it's all I had so if I do that sort of roof again I'm going to have to come up with something else.

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.
