Latest Stitch Meditations







Some are postcard size & will end up as PC's, others are 5" square & fit into a Spotlight frame really nicely.   I keep getting asked "But what are you going to do with them?"  It seems that some need an end goal and don't quite get doing something just for the joy of it.

Charity Quilt

 

I was given the top to quilt, once I figured out how to quilt it (with help from a friend), it went easily & I think doesn't look too bad.

View from 1 William Street, Brisbane

My eldest is a rigger with rope access certification and loves hanging around really tall buildings.  This is the view of Brisbane CBD from the very top of our State Government Building, 1 William Street.  He reckons he was up around 250 meters & could see our house.  It would be in the middle of the picture.

Backyard at Mt Nebo

Visited the grandchildren and we had a couple of visitors there too. This was the smaller goanna.

Here he is again - the big one made its way to the chook pen but fortunately, couldn't get in.

King parrots visit too.

 

Nos. 27 & 28 of my Stitch Meditations

This morphed in to a landscape when I added the 2 greenish pieces on the sandy coloured fabric.  A tree & grasses completed the picture.

Add little scraps to the yellow background - then pondered on how to add some interest.  The stitching seemed to take over and achieve the interest I was looking for.

Japanese Garden




Another beautiful garden in Toowoomba - will go back when there are less people.  It was a bit too noisy for what I want from Japanese tranquility.
