Red Bench No. 2 10/04/2013 07:55:07
    

The second one in the pair, "Red Bench No. 2" These little pieces have been very popular in our house - BSP really wanted to keep them. However, "Red Bench No. 1" has already sold. Although they look delightful together, don't they? The beginning of another small piece on Monday - this one's been getting a lot of interest as I work on the hand-stitching out in the world. I think you're going to like it. :) See you then!
Before and after and a tedious thing... 10/02/2013 07:44:39
    

Oh, what a little stitching can do! And in other news, I am finally getting around to taking my drawing 101 class. Right now, I'm working on dots and vertical lines. It is surprisingly difficult to make a perfect dot. I mean, I was expecting my vertical lines to be less than vertical; but who knew how difficult it was to make a perfect dot? I achieved it on occasion, but not with any consistency. So, dots continue! And a finished Red Bench No. 2 on Friday.

It's Monday - and does it seem like we've been here before? Well, as you may have noticed on Friday, the last piece was called "Red Bench No. 1" so, here we are with the beginnings of No. 2. There won't be more than that (at least not for awhile), because I don't have any more of that painted fabric on hand. However... As you can see, I also don't have much of my favourite "tree bark" paper left either, so unless I make some more, I won't be making trees much longer either! But I did my usual "stitching the branches" thing - and thank goodness I still have a lot of my favourite "branch" burgundy thread. Phew!

The big finish... 09/27/2013 05:41:59
    

When I left you on Wednesday, I said I had just a few more touches, so after I'd added some snow and some little cardinals in the tree, I was all "Done!" But as it hung next to my design wall, I kept looking at it, and thinking it needed something. So I added one more thing. And NOW it's done! Have a great weekend, and see you Monday!

These days I'm enjoying the mix - whether it be in interior design, music, or my art - I'm liking combining, seeing things work together, following natural progressions and letting my instincts guide me without worrying about some of the questions and things that took up a lot of real estate in my brain this summer (i.e. capital A "art", am I developing, where am I going, how do I get through this block, etc.) And since I'm operating out of instinct, of course I'm making trees. Expect to see a lot of trees over the next little while. ;) Speaking of trees... This one started out with basic trunk made out of some of my hand-painted papers, and I added machine stitched branches in dark brown and black threads. And since I'm getting stitchy with it lately, I added some hand stitched grasses. It's already much better than the original "November", but it needs a couple of more little touches to make it sing. ... and for those of you who like to see the back. :) Big finish on Friday! P.S. What the heck - linking up with WIP Wednesday . Come check out what Canadian fiber artists are up to!

Some of you may recall that a couple of years ago, I made a piece called " Novembe r". At the time, I was reasonably chuffed with it, but somewhere along the way, it ended up in the infamous "I hate it" pile where it has languished ever since. And now, every time I see it I get this disappointed feeling - like I not only missed the boat, but wasn't even queued up on the right gangway. It's a terrible feeling! I'm participating in a group table sale at the end of November (don't get started on that Christmas shopping until then!); so I'm making small pieces at accessible prices for it, and as I have a small amount of the hand-painted fabric I had made at the time left, I thought that this might be a chance to make "November" right. So, here we go! See you Wednesday. :)

A Teensey Mistake... 09/20/2013 05:04:17
    

So, I had this idea - it may even have been a picture I saw... A lake, a bright blue sky, a smattering of clouds, some marsh in the distance - the tip of a cherry red canoe. , So, I painted a sky and a lake on some cotton duck. Already, I wasn't really happy, but I assumed that if I still didn't like it in the end, I could paint it out with ripples and some such. So, I put in the tip of my canoe, And I stitched my marsh. And I'm sorry to say, I didn't take a pic of the piece with the stitching and canoe in place. But the canoe, once quilted, ended up looking like a little red barn, and the stitching in the distance lost perspective and became... ? Believe me when I say, it was NOT working. So I trimmed out the canoe, and as is my usual wont - I threw a tree or two on it. Phew. Now THAT's better!
