Very Happy With Progress !

added some cloud detail

very happy with the rock detail

unbelievable scent from these filling the house


  1. Wonderful. I love it. The flowers are nice too.

  2. Beautiful so far - I can't wait to see the end result.

  3. Awesome results on that wash away--so smooth and flowing

    1. Thanks arlee !
      This water-soluble is fabulous to work on !!
      I like the flowing look of granite with streaks of quarts ... trying to simplify like Lawren Harris ... he used that flowing movement in a lot of his work.
      Will come look at your blog if my internet behaves tonight !

  4. Thanks CS ... I'm lovin' it and can't wait til' the finish either !

  5. This is looking just wonderful! You most definitely should be happy with the progress!! So great to watch it happening.
    And lovely peonies. I have some that smell wonderful and some that are kind of if-fy...but they all look fabulous.

  6. Thanks Marny ! I'm glad that you enjoy the journey with me ... I love the steps in others work and we learn more this way, don't you think ?
    The smell would probably be overwhelming ... lol ... but I'm all stuffed up with a cold !

  7. lovely! I'm curious what stabilizer you use. Ive tried many and just gave up purchasing any more...

    It falls apart on me.

    beautiful - your work is soooo beautiful!

    a BIG FAN ; )

    1. Thank you for your lovely comment !
      I am using a cousin of a piece sent to me by Nell Burns, BC, last year. Hers was called Aqua Magic. I did my online reasearch and before ordering any, I went to a local sewing store and found a very similar product called Wet N Gone ... made by Florianii Embroidery, Sewing and Quilting Products ... made in Tennessee. www.RNKDistributing.com
      It came in a roll 12" w x 12 yds (30cmx10m). It cost $38.99 before tax (so you can compare prices) but very worth the price.
      It is wonderful and very strong and washes away quickly (don't pick up a cold Coke and then put your fingers on it ! ... lol ... learned the hard way !)

      I've said this before ... you know, don't you, that I'm going to have to adopt you ! :)

  8. Holy cow, Sharron! You are amazing. And how many hours at the sewing machine?

    1. Thank you so much Penny ! Your opinion counts strongly with me.
      I stopped counting hours years ago as it is phenomenal ... and because I work sporadically, sometimes, and just forget to mark the time. I figure that it takes about an hour to complete a square inch (with 7-10 layers of thread on the top).
      But I started counting the empty spools (save them for each project 'til over) and then I double that to include the same amount of thread in the bobbin.
