Clouds are Floating By at The White Farm

I finished the sky stitch called Aquaduct.   I stitched the clouds with one strand of Petite Peluche at Amy Bunger's suggestion.   I think it looks wonderful.  On to the grass!

Sky at White Farm by Diane Ulmer Pedersen

Last night took me back to the sky on this canvas that I adore.  What do you think?

No Stitching Over the Weekend...

...was packing up kids to go back to college.  Here's what I am hoping to be stitching on soon.

Witchy Woman from Painted Pony
I stitched her skirt stripes with Neon Rays for the orange and three strands of floss for the green.  I satin stitched her hair following the paint with three strands of silk.  More to come.

Owl Angel from Painted Pony

I went to The Needle Works for our Wednesday SWAN get together.  I didn't want to take the White Farm so I took my Owl Angel.  I started stitching on the wings.

White Farm's Trees and Sky

I finished the trunks and branches of the tall trees.  It was Amy's idea to stitch them in packed outline stitch using one strand of Soy Luster.

White Farm Sky

I finished the bushes and started on the sky.  The bushes are outlined with tent stitches, filled in with t-stitches and overstitched with free form fly stitches.
