Dear Friends ~ You all are great sports!
So far, no one online has picked what I chose. A widow friend of mine met me at church this morning and had a sticky note on a little book she's loaning me to read, and she guessed what I have chosen.
I will tell you that when I first started looking at colors lately,
smoked mulberry was my first choice. Another color caught my eye though, but it's still all in the thought stages.
I am thinking of getting paint samples. Especially of the plum colors.
This is fun getting your input.
Why I chose yellows to go with plumy colors is because they are complimentary to one another.
Smoky Mulberry and straw hat have the most votes so far.
If you haven’t seen the color choices go back to this post.
Before I started this post, I was working on the latest needlework heart. The embroidered part I did probably about 3-4 years ago, but I cut it out into heart shape then sewed it onto felt, then am stitching another piece of felt to the back to hide the stitching. While doing this I have been listening to the you tube video posted below. It’s almost over. I recently found Jesse Cook and I LOVE his music. It reminds me of Spain, and that’s where Mark bought his acoustic guitar. In a little shop on a cobbled stone street. Sweet memories. This music makes me want to move something, so I’m either wiggling in my seat as I stitch or tapping my feet. This was a good long run, not quite 3 hours.
Anyway, here’s the piece I was working on and stopped to take pics and start this post to post the you tube video.
Here are several other pieces that I embroidered also about the same time 3-4 years ago.
This is a piece I created this past week.
I did some rearranging of my shelves in the bedroom. I needed to be able to get to drawers of stashed created pieces.
I’m trying to get things more organized so I’ll know where things are that I’ll have listed in my Etsy shop.
This is my view this afternoon.
That’s it for tonight.
For those of you who have the holiday off tomorrow, enjoy.
I will close with the following quote that I posted on my music blog.
How does one put the spiritual significance of music on paper?
Music transcends all languages and barriers and
is the most beautiful communicative skill one can have.
Music makes us all experience different emotions.
Different types of music,
whether it is vocal or instrumental,
Eastern or Western,
Classical or Pop or folk
from any part of the world
can all be spiritual if it has the power
to stir the soul of a person
and transcend time for the moment.
