This is the original photo...
Yes, I finally finished the latest landscape! Took me awhile but there you have it. I tried to do a little video for you but it's refusing to load here so I guess that wasn't such a good plan.
- Karen Ruane (embroiderer extraordinaire!) has announced her new venture and you can read more about it HERE.
- THIS is a really cute little bag that would serve so many purposes.
- Have a peek through the creations of THIS artist.
- THIS is another tutorial for a great little bag.
Today the quote is from Lisa Heckman..."In a society that has you counting money, pounds, calories and steps, be a rebel and count your blessings instead"
That's a terrific new landscape, well done, you! I must check out whether Karen Ruane continues to work white on white. virtuosic stitcher.ReplyDelete
Karen is currently working mostly with white but has been adding colour to her pieces. Still as prolific and amazing as ever!Delete
Thank you for the kudos!
Lovely finish;))) hugs, JulieroseReplyDelete
Thank you Julierose. Now I'm looking forward to starting the next one!Delete
The folk art embroidery is gorgeous. It reminds me of your quilting work.
Thank you! I liked the folk art embroidery too and see a couple of design possibilities.Delete
I think Herbie just got some love through the work of your magic needle. Another fantastic piece! Wow! I haven't signed up for Karen's new adventure, but I am thinking about it. She's inspires me greatly.Delete
I hope Herbie felt the love! And yes, Karen certainly is an inspiration.Delete
Another great finish!! You’ve really found your “wheelhouse”!! xoReplyDelete
Thank you Cathy - I'm enjoying what I'm doing, that's for sure.Delete
Sherry of createology: Your VW bug landscape is beautiful dear. The Folk Artist works are amazing. Every time I see bags to sew I want to get my machine humming…but alas never do. I do count my blessings everyday and you my friend are definitely one of my blessings! XOReplyDelete
Thank you Sherry! Bags inspire me too and I always make plans to create some and then I get seduced by landscapes.Delete
Herbie looks fantastic! What a great finish.ReplyDelete
Thank you Lorraine! He was certainly fun to do.Delete
Those little bags are so cute.
Thank you Jackie! I'm happy this one is finished and can't wait to start on another.Delete
This is a fabulous finish Mary Anne. I truly believe that your landscapes get better each time you make one. Christine xxReplyDelete
Well I hope I'm getting better because they do say practice makes perfect. Methinks I have to do a LOT more practicing before I reach perfect though!Delete
Wow!! Another sublime landscape with Herbie as the star! Just amazing, Mary Anne!ReplyDelete
Herbie IS a star - at least in my mind. That's why I simply couldn't resist Michael's photo when I saw it.Delete
Herbie is a fitting name for this old car! Great job. Thanks for bag patterns.ReplyDelete
He couldn't be anything BUT Herbie! Although, I suppose, most young people these days wouldn't have a clue who Herbie was.Delete
You improved on the original picture, which is quite a feat as the original picture is stunning. I just noticed the wonky visor on the driver's side. It's perfect! I love all your details. The flowers, and the building adds to the quilted picture, too!ReplyDelete
Thank you Becki - kind words indeed!Delete
Great job on your finished piece of art. Great interpretation.ReplyDelete
Thank you! I had fun with it.Delete
You made Herbie beautiful again, what a fantastic finish!ReplyDelete
Thank you! I love 'Herbie' so I couldn't resist making this one.Delete
