I thought I'd take a moment and show you what I've been working on.
This is my 2nd 'Neighborhood' entry for the quilt show this summer. But, since it's the opposite of a neighborhood, I've already started another one...
I've decided to call this the Irish Country Side. It's based on a photo I saw on Pinterest. I basically played with some different embroidery stitches to decide which flowers got planted in my gardens. I feel like adding just a few more boullion roses down in the far bottom left corner. I'm particularly fond of the crocheted rose. And, the fat sheep.
Another Pinterest photo. It's hard to tell but the little cone of flowers on the door is woven. There's a little handle on the door. The rose vine is couched and the roses are french knots. Eventually, I'm going to add a pot of something on the left of the door. And, maybe a something on the right of the door. Not sure what. Maybe a topiary? I kind of feel like that might be too high class for this neighborhood.
There's more but I'll put it in another post as not to bore the snot out of everyone!
