There's been some more progress on the landscape as you can see here...
You should be able to click to embiggen if you'd like to. I fussy cut all those flowers and now I'm in the process of adding embroidery details over top. There's going to be a LOT of French knots on this one!
And, one of my evening projects ended up with this little finish for our expected 'grandie'...
- I love THESE! Wouldn't they be fun for fall decor? And THIS is something else that might be fun to create.
- HERE is another fun project for creating gifts.
- And THIS is another one!
- And one MORE!
- THIS one would be nice for Christmas decor.
Today's quote..."My body sometimes feels sore, but it works. I don't sleep well most nights, but I do wake up to fight another day. My wallet is not full but my stomach is. I don't have all the things I ever wanted but I do have everything I will ever need. My life is by no means perfect but it's my life and I'm happy"
The sunflowers are beatutiful, nice touch to an already gorgeous quilt.ReplyDelete
Great list of links! Love the nail polish marble treatment.
Thank you! It's getting there. I like the nail polish idea too - never use the stuff on my nails, but this might be something I'd do.Delete
I love French knots! How beautifully your little one will be dressed!ReplyDelete
I like French knots too but they do take for....ever to do! And yes, I can't have a wee one not dressed in something warm from Grandma.Delete
Gorgeous knitted sweater. Love it.ReplyDelete
The sunflowers are a lovely addition.
I'm happy with the little sweater too - hopefully our wee one will get some wear out of it.Delete
As for the sunflowers, there's a long way to go before I can say that part of the landscape is finished. It's surprising just how long the embroidery takes.
Sunflowers are a nice touch.ReplyDelete
Not in the original photo as you know, but somehow I had to add them.Delete
What a cute little baby set! The landscape is coming along beautifully.ReplyDelete
Thanks Vicki - on both counts.Delete
Embroidery is a sloooow process. I think that's why it's calming. Slow rocking rhythm. Your landscape has turned the corner. Told ya!ReplyDelete
Yes, it's slow but I love it. I always think that the current landscape won't get embroidery added but I simply can't help myself. For some reason it doesn't feel complete unless I do.Delete
the landscape is coming more alive....it amazes me how you do all that extra work on each of them......how sweet the little sweater set for your grandy! I will get to see mine in a couple of weeks.....and yes that will be GRAND!ReplyDelete
Coming alive - that's a nice way to put it, thank you. Hopefully our wee grandie will get to wear this little sweater set often. She's being born in the winter so something warm and cozy will be welcome I hope.Delete
Love the latest additions to the landscape Mary Anne and that little jacket and headband are just perfect. Christine xxReplyDelete
There's a lot more hours of embroidery to come on the landscape I think but it's getting there. And I can't have a wee little addition not wrapped in Grandma's love!Delete
Your meticulous work anazes me. Then your speed of accomplished work astounds me!ReplyDelete
I'm so lucky to have Resident Chef to happily putter in the kitchen. Not having to make meals gives me lots of time to stitch!Delete
Love your landscapes!!!ReplyDelete
Thank you! Good thing we have a mutual admiration going on, isn't it!!Delete
Wow! What fabulous additions you have made to the church scene. Though you often worry your way through the projects, you have such a knack for getting things right. The baby will be snug and look great in her lovely jacket and headband.The Chef is a Gem.ReplyDelete
You're so right in saying that I worry my way through the landscapes. Each step I add is accompanied by a whole lot of waffling with a lot of do I/don't I going on.Delete
