a little paint, a little stitch

I'm having another productive day despite a poor sleep last night. I met friends for coffee on my way to the grocery store and got home in time to wipe out my oven which I had sprayed before I left. It wasn't a huge job, just a small spill.
I added a bit more paint to some bare patches on my canvas. I have two pieces this size and plan to make a zippered pouch once I'm done stitching on it. As you can see I've just gotten started.
 I really enjoy free motion zipping around the canvas, especially with a machine that goes smoothly!

While I was at my paint table, I added a touch of gold screen printing to a natural dyed silk scarf that I dyed  in early fall. I plan to get it in the mail this week. It's a Christmas gift.

Finally, I've sewn down the binding onto my garden piece and took it out on my deck for photographing. I can't decide if I should call it Moonlight Garden or Fantasy Garden or if I will put it up for sale.

I even got my fresh air, opting out of a walk but cleaning up a few more garden cuttings and tying up a few more bushes. We may get snow on the weekend!

It's gorgeous here today..15 degrees and sunny. Your projects are always amazing Holly. You make it look so easy. Fantasy Garden sounds nice to me and I would find it really hard to part with it if it was mine.

I love your garden piece. I am also glad that someone else likes taking beautiful pieces of fabric and making zippered pouches!!
