Sneak Peek

Here is a sneak peek at what I am working on today. It is a piece with California Poppies. I need more yellow in the poppies so I tried paint — fail!

You can’t even tell that I added paint to the one on the right. This is silk charmeuse that is already fused which makes it difficult.

I have decided that I will add the yellow and do the leaves with thread painting.

It was an unexpected nice day around here. No rain and not too cold and a bit of sunshine. Fall color is taking its time this year. I took these photos this morning on our walk. The color is beginning to pop here and there.


Hope you are having a nice week-end, wherever you are.

    I like the stitching you’ve done on the background – makes the fabric look like seersucker!
    Your foliage shots are nice. Our summer was so dry that we’re not having a lot of color in our area. Here in San Antonio it’s like going back into summer!

    Fall is slowly arriving here also. The past couple of days has brought more color to the leaves, but I am enjoying the warm temps. Rumor has it that it will all come to an end Monday and we will dive into the chill. Poppies are tough. They have so much texture and color variations. I await seeing what the Queen of techniques has up her sleeve!
