Meanwhile, Back in the Sewdio

Christmas Knitting continues...but not fast enough!

And miniatures like this one are Under Construction:

First, the inspirational photo, taken last May a few kilometres up a gravel road south of Tees, Alberta:

Inspiration for "Wishing Pond"

And the fabric piece, currently submitting to hand-stitch:

"Test Mat" - "Wishing Pond" - WIP October 2014

There's another piece -- "Winter Dinette" -- also under the needle, getting some beads.  Photo will follow eventually!

Each of these finishes at 5" x 7", and are matted to 8" x 10"...and hopefully will be on display by mid-November -- along with "Storm Building" -- at Mirror's "Gracie D's Antiques, Collectibles & Giftware".

I'm linking to WIP Wednesday over at The Needle and Thread Network and then heading off to bed...tomorrow is another day at The Shop, followed by picking up my car...and the long drive home.

Lovely interpretation of the photo. I do like these small pieces.

I like what you have chosen from your photo and played up in your piece.
If I may suggest ... You might consider extending those small branches right of the page. If you go off the page you can make single sewing lines which make the branches gradually finer. I hope you don't mind this critique but you have potential to make some very lovely paintings.
Nice colouring, too.
