That said, I've been doing it as a favour to a long-time acquaintance, and as she's promised not to take orders for further versions of this piece, I am prepared to be generous in spirit when it is finally finished and she asks whether or not she owes me... (wink; grin!) It's proved to be a good experience for me; I've honed existing skills and learned some new techniques, and now that it's almost finished, I'm glad I took it on.
After four (more) solid hours today, here's what it looks like...
and a couple of detail shots:
|Bud #1, Poppy #1, Poppy #2|
|Poppy #3, Buds # 2 and #3|
Then I will baste the "to be framed" area so the recipient has an idea of how to communicate this with her chosen framer.
Meanwhile, I'm linking up with The Needle and Thread Network and hope you'll check out the other participants this week.
Have a good one!
