That's not to say that other textile work will go by the board. My latest 15 x 15 Group piece is faced and just needs the facing tacked down on the back, its label and its sleeve. And "Macintosh's Garden" (or whatever I'm going to call it), is once again percolating on the design wall, now that I have the background all stitched together:
No, the 'grid on a grid' won't likely be done in black, as I want it to be much more subtle than that! I'm just getting a sense of the proportions of it. Clearly I need to work on the profusion of roses to balance them a bit more over the piece. Right now they're sitting rather heavily on the bottom -- albeit this is simply the sketch on clear plastic pinned on top of the background! :-)
But it's late afternoon...and with my next mini ready to work on, and the sunshine calling me for a jog...I'll link this up to WIP Wednesday at TNTN and be out the door.
Gina's photo is gorgeous and you did a beautiful job recreating it in fabric! Well done!
Beautiful - both the photograph and your rendition of it.
Luv that mini! Sometimes we get skies like that. And I luv Macintosh!!! :)
Your mini is lovely. The fabric is just perfect as a background.
Gorgeous piece! I wish I could get up to Lacombe to snatch it up because it's just lovely!
Beautiful, Margaret. Love the vibrant colours!
Beautiful interpretation of the photo.
Your daughter apparently loved your rendition of her photo!! She linked your blog!! It's beautiful!! Love minis!
Love Sailor Take Warning! And good for you for entering the show & sale. I'm not brave enough for that!
I actually like the look of the small black squares and black outlines of the roses. Updates the classic Macintosh rose style, provides great tension and contrast of style within the piece ... love it. Sorry ... I guess I just prefer a contemporary look.
Not to confuse anything, for you ....
: ) Beautiful! I look forward to the day my kids travel and send me pictures. ; )
I can see why you "stole" Gina's photo for inspiration. She has her mother's eye for colour. Sailor, Take Warning is simply gorgeous. I'm still enjoying, watching you play with the roses. Good luck and have fun at the show in Lacombe. I wish I lived close enough to go.
Love your Sailor, Take Warning! Sooo gorgeous. The hand dyed background is just perfect.
Your pieces are breathtaking even before they are finished!
And I feel your pain about the related office work...
I am so impressed at how you are able to translate the crafty part of quiltmaking and the arty part of painting into something quite special to your aesthetic! Whew! That was DEEP!
