Monochrome Landscape Complete

I finished the first piece for the Sumptuous Surfaces class this weekend.

Actually, it will be the first and only, since the class is now over. I think I'll continue on my own, though. I've had an idea in my head for a year or so that I was going to try and do in CQ but I think it will lend itself more readily to freeform embroidery. I'll probably do it along with the Midsummer Night CQ as a break from the darker colors that will predominate in that piece. We'll see what happens!

Speaking of the Midsummer Night CQ, Nat is ready to start actually painting so, hopefully, I'll have a centerpiece to work off of soon. Procrastination comes to him naturally, I'm afraid... I'm the Queen and he is the Prince. When we are unsure of ourselves, we just don't do it! Anyhoo, I'm going to start on the outer blocks this week 'cause I can't wait any longer! ;0) I hope to have some progress to show you later this week.

I know that feeling of procrastinating when you aren't sure of something. I do it myself. Any day now, I'll stop. =) The SS piece looks good. I especially like the bronze area. I'll look forward to seeing what else you decide to experiment with. And the Midsummer Night CQ, as well.

This is a real little beauty. It's been a pleasure watching it grow.

The piece is beautiful--all you'd hoped for and more.

I know only too well that procrastination thing. Days can easily turn into weeks around here.
