Something to brighten up the winter - and all this SNOW!


I felt like something bright and cheerful to work on, and to use up leftover worms. so this is what I am working on now: the wording is hard to make out in the photo [I think I need to change some colours here and there], but it will say:
live simply, laugh often, love much
The last border will be totally hit-or-miss and I hope to power through my odds and ends that way. The flying geese are hit or miss, as are the big padulas [fake flowers]. It is on primitive linen, mostly #6 cut wools - as-is, marbleized, casserole dyed... whatever I have on hand.

thank you - it is going pretty quickly, so I hope to be waking up to it by my bed, soon.

thanks JoEllen - it's fun to be working on bright colours in the winter... I can hardly wait for spring. At least the sun is shining, though the snow is falling -- again!
Maybe when I get finished my other projects, I will try one of your neat 3D ideas - I've always loved pineapples!
