New Look

March 27, 2011


I decided on beads.  Lots of beads for the little red dots that are on the manuscript.  
I also decided I didn't really like to true yellow in the hair of the man.  It needed to be "knocked back" as they say.  I had no other yellow in the piece and it drew too much attention.  
So here it goes. 
He his also surrounded by gold, rose and blue beads.  Different than the little red ones. 
They, the red ones, added more than the pictures show, they sparkle but only a bit. 
All in all, I'm OK with the finished product. 
Now on to the next project.  
I've been playing with beasts and quilting for now.  
I've signed up for Jude's  
cloth whispering and I hope to work on my felt quilt as well as an embroidered quilt.

I can't wait to see the 'fini'ed product in person. I really like it. I knew there was something about the man that was not quite right but couldn't figure it out. You nailed it. He works so much better.
And I am glad to hear that you will be getting back to THE quilt.

Gosh this has come a long way since I last saw it. I love the medieval symbols and tones in this cloth. And the fish, and that man are just perfect.

The swamp looks fascinating. I must tell you the drips were only onto an old catalogue I was using for scrap paper - not the library book!! Thanks for visting.
