Summer is slipping away...

I have been quiet this summer.  I've still been creating, but I have also been enjoying the summer days.  I'm trying to decide whether or not to keep blogging.  This is the fourth time I have written this post.  Not sure if it is my computer, the browser, or blogger but definitely not worth posting four times.  So, I may be hanging up my blogging hat, or switching to a new format.

I'm working on a series based on some photos I took during a garden tour in my city.  These pieces will hang during the month of September at an indoor park.  Here is a quick sneak peak of some of the unfinished pieces.  They are all only 12" square as the space is fairly small.  This first one is from a photo of a small backyard waterfall.  Here is the actual photo and next is my start of a recreation, still need to add lot's of stitching to this one.

Here are a few of the others before they had the painted highlights and stitching added.

beginnings of garden series
There are seven in total.  I'll have an online show for those of you who don't live in my city, in September.  Hope you are enjoying these summer days.

Have a creative day
