I don't know how well you can see the additions to the landscape, but here's a photo anyway....
The barn and the sky, as well as the grass, has been stitched/quilted and I've started shading the barn and working on the clouds. There are several more layers of paint/pencil to add yet before it looks the way I would like it to. Of course there's always the very real risk that I might well flub it up totally!
- THIS is a rather cute cross stitch design for a reindeer.
- If you are interested in gnomes, perhaps THESE might intrigue you!
- Seeing THESE was another 'awwww' moment! While you're there check out the other amazing galleries too.
- If you would like a nice free pattern for knitting a Christmas ball have a look at THIS one.
- Never let it be said this isn't a full-service blog! If your dishwasher isn't running up to par, check out the tips found HERE.
- Have a peek at the pretties created by THIS artist.

Today's quote... "Living a stress free life doesn't come from perfect experiences because there is no such thing as a perfect life; rather, it's a reward of frequent positive interpretations of one's ordeals"
Your new landscape piece is beginning to breath...come to life. Beautiful.ReplyDelete
Takes a lot of layers of 'stuff' to get it to look real, so it takes awhile!Delete
Oh i can see the additions--very nice--you are moving right along on this one...hugs, JulieroseReplyDelete
Yay - glad you could see what I've done. It's hard to know how much actually shows up in the photos.Delete
You won't "flub" up your landscape. The stitching on the barn looks great and the sky is amazing. I love those clouds, too.ReplyDelete
Good to know somebody has faith in me!Delete
It looks as if it's taking on a personality already to me.ReplyDelete
Each step in the process seems to add that bit of personality to it - an evolution that's fun to create and watch evolve.Delete
Thank you for the linksReplyDelete
The cross stitch deer is lovely; the stitched lampshade are gorgeous; and the knitted oranments look easy enough for a beginner. :)
I loved those stitched lampshades too - not sure I would ever attempt making one though. Glad you found something interesting!Delete
I can't see your progress because I'm new to your blog .... that's a super project and I will now watch it grow, Merry Christmas 🎄ReplyDelete
Welcome Clare-Aimetu! Hope you find something here that you like. (ps. if you want to see the 'evolution' of this project, just scroll through a few of my older posts).Delete
And Merry Christmas wishes to you as well!
This is going to be another gorgeous piece. I would like to be a fly on the wall and watch you work.ReplyDelete
Wouldn't it be fun if we could 'fly' to each other's houses and see how the other works? I would dearly love to see how you do those wonderful dolls. We can but dream though.....Delete
I think it's looking great!ReplyDelete
Thanks Vicki! It's changed a lot since this photo was taken....stay tuned!Delete
Old barn is looking good. Thanks for the links.ReplyDelete
