Local Landscapes

Early yesterday evening my husband drove me around to take some pictures of the local landscape. Whilst the quality of the photos is mostly quite poor (probably operator error!), I am really quite pleased with some of the compositions and am starting to play around cropping and reshaping.

Tudor Windows

Another piece of drawn thread work ............

....................... made into a little bag. This was originally one of my C&G samples, "Tudor Windows", and framed with a crunchy gold metallic paper behind it ............. I loved it (except the frame). After ditching the backing and frame, I just couldn't find the "right" gold in a fabric so have had to compromise - it's not the same but I don't think it's too bad.

Having spent the last few weeks "tidying up" some of the pieces laying around, it's time to move onto something "new". Problem is, I have so many ideas it's deciding what to do next!
