Sew far sew good

It's been a hot one today and I've been indoors sewing the latest picture. I've had both back and front windows open so there was a cool breeze wafting through. 
This is it so far, still more to do, but it's taking shape nicely. I already had the background, a previous project which didn't get finished. It's just right for this. I'm going to couch some cord around the outline of the tree so it stands out. And put some flowers around the base. 

Could do with some rain really, still watering up manually with watering cans. I need to get the electric trimmer out and do the hedge, but it's too darn hot at the moment. I'll catch you later. ilona

  2. This what I adore about your blog, Ilone ... the creativity you express with your art in an upcycle, recycle, reuse kind of way! I don't comment often, and often don't read the comments, so I was okay with you not doing comments; but, I'm just one person and it's your blog. Although, you do have quite the following! We're the same age -- just a couple of months difference and I very recently retired from a long and fruitful career. Now, I have to figure out this thing called retirement, which I will do. You've helped me to think about things. We're very different and I enjoy that! I admire that you've blogged so long. Keep on doing what you're doing. It's just lovely and feeds my creative spirit. Bye for now.

  4. We were grinning like idiots when we heard a certain sound this evening, the pattern of rain on the roof. The windows were opened and we went into the garden to make sure we were not dreaming.
    It has stopped now but hopefully there will be some more tonight.
    Amazing to find rain such a wonderful experience! Sue

  5. I love your tree and I love your blog, perhaps because they are both unique.
    Perhaps do your blog how you do your art, when you want to, how you want to and in your own unique style.

  7. Love the tree, especially since I know how it started out. One thing I wish is that I could see your art work all together. It is an amazing body of work. It is so joyful. You just do what’s right for you. The rest of us are privileged to be along for the ride.

  8. Really like the tree Ilona and I do enjoy a bit of handstitching. Too warm still here though it means the washing is drying well as thankfully there is a breeze. Keep stitching!
