2019 Weekly Leaf, wk 1
This is the fifth year of doing leaves and I'm starting out with some extra prints that I've made over the years. The first is a botanical print on vintage silk taffeta.
72 days of Landscapes
The first 72 days of the year I'll be making a small landscape piece each day, they will all be 6" x 8" some horizontal and some vertical. The base fabric on all of them is a piece of canvas, the actually landscape will be made from a variety of materials, fabric, paper, machine stitching, hand stitching, watercolor crayons, etc. I'm using the term landscape quite loosely and I'm hoping that they get better as I progress through the project.

2019 Daily stitching, days 1-3
This year I'm stitching on a vintage damask napkin that is 21inches square. There is a circular design woven into the fabric that I'll be stitching first, after that I'll probably start making things up. There are floral designs woven in but I'll be ignoring those.
