For the life of me, I do not know how this photo ended up in mirror image, nor can I figure out how to flip it back. The downed tree should be on the left.
In any case, I'm pleased to be progressing with Pinehaven. It sat around for a few days while I made a teddy bear for the gift exchange at son Phil's house on Christmas Eve, but then when I did sit down to stitch, the ideas fell into place. I'll add some paintstick highlights to the tree trunks so they look more barklike, and there will be stitching on the green silk wibblies at the foot of the trees. Ferns and tropical plants next. Then a corner of the house, I think. And at the bottom, palmettos rampant--but that's weeks, many stitches, and yards of fabric away. The owner of Pinehaven is visiting for Christmas, so I wanted to be able to show some progress. I suspect he may be more interested in his mother's cookies initially.
I have a couple of other sewing projects awaiting attention, and in the meantime I need to learn how to use the Power Point program on my tablet. A couple of talks about fiber art coming up. The projector has been ordered so I can have time to get used to the machines in addition to organizing the photos. New challenges--makes me think that cookies would be easier.
