There are some further updates on the landscape as you can see from this photo...Some of the additional elements have been fussy cut from pre-printed fabric. The work on the tree has begun with the leaves ready to be added next. Then it will be on to the embroidery part of it.
- THIS is a really nice cardinal quilt block design you might like.
- Not sure how easy it will be to get the raw materials at this moment since many would be covered with snow, but I do love THESE!
- Making THESE roses would be fun - and so many possibilities for their use!
- For those of you who enjoy working with paper, perhaps making some of THESE might be fun.
Today's quote is from John Holmes..."There is no exercise better for the heart than reaching down and lifting people up"
Love the sweet addition of the birds in the tree, the little pigs and the chooks. This landscape is looking fabulous. Love those stone buttons. No snow here.....must go out and find me some stones. =)ReplyDelete
I bought that bird fabric simply to fussy cut for the tree. What can I say....Delete
Drilling rocks for buttons is certainly novel. Good idea to wear a mask. You do not want to inhale stone dust! She does mention safety glasses. I do love drilling.ReplyDelete
I don't think I'll be drilling any rocks but the idea is fun anyway. I'm not about to go out and buy a drill just so I can try it!Delete
That cute little vignette in the bottom left hand corner really adds a feeling of depth to the rest of your picture..it is coming together so well...hugs on a rainy evening JulieroseReplyDelete
Thank you Julierose - right now I'm adding the leaves to the tree and then the embroidery will start.Delete
Everything on the farm is just right! The tree fabric is so realistic I had to do a closeup. I'm sure you will add more birds on other projects -the fabric won't be wasted. Such a lovely quote from John HolmesReplyDelete
I wish you could touch the tree fabric because I'm really happy with all the texture. Unfortunately that aspect of it is lost in the photos. And yes I'm sure the birds will appear in other projects down the road....there are several other bird species on the fabric that I can use somewhere.Delete
Nice additions to the landscape. I like the cardinal block which is one of several Christmas blocks. thanksReplyDelete
I liked that cardinal block too - lots of possibilities there.Delete
This landscape is just looking so beautiful Mary Anne! I really love the latest additions! Christine xxReplyDelete
Thank you Christine. Each addition makes it look a little more interesting I think (I hope!)Delete
LOVE the framing of your piece. The Kentucky state bird is the beautiful Cardinal. So I must save that pattern. I really like it.ReplyDelete
I thought that cardinal was a nice one too - hopefully you can use it for something.Delete
Love the addition of the tree and birds.ReplyDelete
I used 'artistic license' to add the tree because it wasn't in the original image. For some reason I felt it needed it.Delete
