Here is one more picture from Saturday's kayaking. You can see the inkiness of the water and the clouds reflected near the bottom. It is quite otherworldly when your gliding silently through it.
While it was another terribly hot and muggy day, I did spend a few minutes doing the thread painting and the quilting on this postcard sized piece.
Now I'm almost ready to add some silk ribbon, perle cotton embroidery and bead accents. Am I crazy to do all this on a postcard sized piece? It seems there are quicker things I could do but I can't help myself; I just love the layers of embellishment. I've learned through experience that one really does have to do what makes one happy.
