And here is a close up of the cow thread painting titled:-  I am watching you. I know some may have seen it on FB but thought for those that aren't on FB may like to see it.

I haven't be on here much as I have been working on the cow thread Painting and some other project getting ready for the Art Crawl open studio tour a week Saturday.

Here I am with the finished project.

After being out of action for ten days or more, I am now beginning to get caught up on my to do list.

postcard challenge I was in, the challenge diamonds this is my take on it.

It was a fun small project to get me back in my sewing studio.

So thankful no one was hurt. When houses were built back then, they were built to last forever and almost nothing could destroy them.

Scary damage to the house.... wonderful that no major damage to life or house was done... but a lot to clean up and deal with even so.  In that cold weather too... I can't imagine it.  Gwen, your work is wonderful. I'm thrilled you've been doing some tp.  I love that you are all doing SOMETHING!!!!  I've just spent 2 hours in the garden... first time out there for weeks.  I've managed to pull up a lot of dead / dried out succulents, and rearranged some rocks and put in 160 kg of crushed rock.... I'll put in some pots with plants in when the weather improves and we get some rain..  Everything is so dry..  Today's effort was just to make it looked like someone cared... the weeds of course come up bright and green and robust when everything else is dead.

Charlotte... I've done a lot of my thread painting by applique!!  The Lady in the red turban was my biggest example... I just couldn't get the background flat, so cut her out and thread painted over the edges....I also did random lines of stitching all through the turban and her face along the main lines so it was all attached to the background so it didn't 'bubble' out.

Char- that looks pretty scary, glad no one was hurt.

Here our winter keeps dragging on, usually we are into better weather, it seems most days we get a light dusting of snow, usually wake up to it. But the wind is strong and biting still in winter jackets.

Just about to begin another thread painting of the cows to give to the photographer who gave me the picture to use.
