Home Portrait for Meg

I am definitely flitting between genres at an accelerated pace these days!

Putting aside my investigations into the delights of my Go! cutter and other new tools for the moment, I'm making a portrait of one of my friend's homes. This is the picture she wants, and it printed up beautifully on the silk crepe de chine I got from Out of My Mind Prints.

Yes, that is a hoop...I don't normally use one but for the fine stitching required (as the scale is so small), a hoop will help me stitch in an even straight line.

I wrote about creating "place portraits" in the recent issue of CQMagOnline. You can read it here.

I'm looking forward to working on this one...and it matches the weather outside too. ;-)

I can't wait to see it finished. I really love all the stitches you are sewing. Have seen all the pictures on your blog in the last two days.

How pretty this! Upon "clicking to enlarge" I could really see how small - relative to other things in the photo! As always, I look forward to watching.

Those round lace motifs make perfect snowflakes to accent the picture.
