Project progress

Here we are at the second week of the year already and my stitching projects are progressing.

2019 Weekly Leaf

This weeks leaf is a leftover print from year 3 (2016) of my weekly leaves. It's the first print or shape print from a gelli plate, the 2nd print is the detail print. You can see the second print here by scrolling down to week #41. The two prints of the same leave are quite different.

2019 Daily stitching days 4-10

72 Days of Landscapes #4-10

I'm enjoying doing these, they are very quick and I'm just using stuff I have in the studio. I'm finding it quite freeing to just do something that I have absolutely no plan for. It would be nice if they improved as I go along, but it's just meant to be an exercise and a way of marking time.

  1. Gosh, it’s too bad you can’t find something to keep you busy!! Seriously…..fabulous work as always!

    1. Ah, maybe I should do some hourly stitching :), that would keep me busy!

  2. I am really enjoying your landscapes! They don't need to "improve" one iota! Each is a wonderful treasure!

    1. Thank you, maybe I'm just being a bit hard on myself.

  3. Great landscapes. Little glimpses into your point of view.

  4. I love the landscapes, they are wonderful. How will you finish them, all in one piece, individually? Can't wait to see. I have added your blog to my reader, I found you via Slow Sunday stitching. Have a terrific Slow Sunday Stitching.

    1. Thank you! I have no real plans for the landscapes, if I do something it will be individually . They fit nicely under a 5"x 7" opening in a mat board.

  5. Your landscapes are really pretty. I love those leaves and the circular design.
