I was looking forward to some rainy day studio time today but the weather changed a bit. It is cloudy, windy and just a bit damp, perfect for doing some gardening. After our leisurely breakfast over the paper, we went outside and tackled the garden that runs against the back fence. It would probably have taken me weeks but with Gord's help, we finished weeding and mulching. I get to look at it from my deck, kitchen window and studio window.
I found this moss(lichen?) on a piece of wood behind the garden. I need to look for a good reference book; I love to know the names of everything! This one looks like little bowls.
This is a runner that I want for my own coffee table. I plan to free motion stitch down the leaves and outline the vines. I don't want to use interfacing because it is too stiff but I will need something. Perhaps I shall have to go looking for a softer interfacing and enough fabric to back it. I don't think I want batting in it, but I need some kind of support for the free motion work. The background fabric is linen. I hope I can find something in town.
