It's here!







This should be fun, it covers my design board! I am contemplating the stitching and where I will add color if at all.

The crit group I belong to is on it's way over from the east side of Cleveland. I can unveil the newly finished Joe in the Garden of Eating and they get  preview of 26 Flat Tires.

Back to the salad fixings, fennel and chives from the garden and a strawberry pie.

Now I Wait

For my next piece of fabric. Which should be here today or tomorrow, maybe Saturday?!
Joe in the Garden of Eating is finished. 39.5" W x 32" H. I thought there would be some hand stitching but I removed it after I did a sample. Done!













And a detail, love all the different colors in what seemed to be a monochromatic print.

Next up is a photo a friend gave me of her dad on a trip out west, taken maybe in the thirties. Black and white. 72" long x 42" deep at the start, shrinkage occurs with the stitching. I need to check my stock of gray thread.
