I'm not sure that you can see much change on this landscape but most of it has been quilted now and some of the detail stitching on the school has happened. This week I will start the embroidery in the foreground and this particular piece will have a lot of it - or at least such is the plan.
The mailman has been rather nice and brought me two nice additions to my stash...
Some new yarn colors to add to my mile-a-minute afghan I'm crocheting and some of these little clips that I've had on my wish list for quite awhile.
- Have a look at the art found HERE (thank you Penny for the head's up on this one....and Penny is one of those amazing artists!).
- And HERE is another great artist (click on her 'gallery' button and have fun exploring).
- THIS pinterest board features all sorts of ideas for repurposing old books. I especially like the one at the top of the page
- Have a look through the gallery of THIS amazing embroidery artist!
Today's quote.. "Remember when people had diaries and got mad when someone read them? Now they put everything online and get mad when people don't"
I wonder if journal writers always secretly wanted to publish? Now they can be online and finding out that people talk back!ReplyDelete
You could be right! There's journaling and then there's journaling (if that makes any sense). A lot of it I sure wouldn't want to put online.Delete
It's nice to see green on the ground if only in your lovely quilt. And all those beautiful and colorful yarns do brighten things up. What will you use the clips for? They too are so colorful.ReplyDelete
The clips replace pins when you're sewing - at least that's the theory anyway. I have yet to test them. I'm looking forward to playing with them AND with the yarn.Delete
Very charming school house. Love how you have captured the old wood and windows.ReplyDelete
Those clips are the best new item added to my studio. Interesting artist links.
Thank you Judy! And glad to hear you like the clips - I've been wanting to try them for a long time and ended up adding them onto an online order simply so I could get free shipping.Delete
Your landscape is really coming along nicely. Yay for the mailman and receiving your yarns. Those little clips are amazing and work wonders...especially when pins don’t. So many amazing and talented artists you have linked. How true this quote is. Blessings dear...ReplyDelete
Yes, sometimes the mailman does bring some good things! I'm anxious to try the clips to see if they're as good as I hear they are.Delete
Wow, what a difference between the last picture of your schoolhouse to this picture. The process is always fascinating to watch. This is going to be another beauty! Hope you two are staying warm and healthy. By the way, that picture of your DGS a couple posts back was so cute. it reminded me of Bruce and his love of Adams peanut butter (but we buy the chunky with the green lid and always have at least 5 large jars in the pantry as we go through one per week!)ReplyDelete
A whole jar of peanut butter in a week? Wow!! Don't think our little guy is quite there yet. Glad you could see the difference/additions to the landscape - sometimes I wonder if they show up on the blog.Delete
First time here for sometime - love the new piece of work and looking forward to how it developsReplyDelete
Welcome Gillibeth! I'm so glad you visited and took the time to comment. Hope you find something here to interest you!Delete
Hi there, just caught up on your posts. I wish I had a resident chef esp. one making fudge in the shape of hearts! How special. Meanwhile this red building reminds me of my grandparents "store"...in outport Nl they often called the barn a store or stable and it was always painted with the red ochre. You have such a talent to bring these photos to life. Amazing!ReplyDelete
Yes, my Resident Chef is a keeper! I haven't done much cooking since the day he retired and I must admit I've never eaten so well either.Delete
Interesting that a barn could be called a store....never heard of that.
I think if my journal was online, and folks don't read it, then to me, that would be evidence there is hope yet in the world for common sense. :)ReplyDelete
There's a great deal of truth to that!Delete
Great Post with so much to see. The links are All so interesting. I had never heard of the clips and will search locally for some. The quote made me laugh, realizing how true it is.ReplyDelete
Glad you enjoyed the links! As for the clips, I have yet to test them out but by all reports they're great.Delete
I LOVE your red schoolhouse. I'm having a hard time keeping up these days. It looks like this may be nearing completion and I completely missed the start of it. I can tell it's going to be another favorite of mine. :)ReplyDelete
Thanks Becki! Don't worry about not keeping up - you're certainly not missing much.Delete
I love the patchwork sky of this piece! What a kind mailman.ReplyDelete
I've been wanting to try weaving in one of the landscapes and this was my attempt.Delete
The landscape is coming on really nicely Mary Anne and I am really looking forward to seeing the embroidered additions. Have a great weekend! Christine xxReplyDelete
I'm looking forward to seeing the finished additions too!Delete
