new work ~ progress

Hello ~ on this snowy evening, the winds are up and the snow is blowing, who knows what it will look like in the morning. Beautiful, I am sure ...
I am so excited about where this is going, it is a slow process but I love every twist and turn and stitch. My debate was if I should take it to my machine or keep working by hand ... for now I am keeping my hand to my work. I find I have more control by hand ... so I worked on a similiar piece strictly by machine ... I love it too but they have different personalities.
This piece will have a final sheer vintage fabric over the top that will let the image peek through, it may not be that far away!

That's looking lovely, very pretty and delicate. Would be interested to see how different the machine stitched version looks.

The bits woven in here and there make it so textured and adds to the richness. xox Corrine

Slow and steady progress usually are the best way to create something worthwhile. Something that you will love. Worth the effort.

Oh it is so beautiful! I love what you are up to here! the colours are perfect! and all the hand woven detail is divine!

Are you enjoying how bright it is today? The snow has finally stopped here in Welland, but it is all white and so very inspirational......reflected light, is there anything better? lol
