I felt a little bereft this afternoon without my Birches and Rose Hips fiber art piece to work on. I have passed it on to the buyer, a friend, who is going to check out the framing options. It will be coming back to me for the final finish.
It's a rather mild day, although windy and I just couldn't work up the energy to go out and clear off the bit of snow on the driveway. I did at least do the front steps.
After lunch with my tea, I read for a bit but my mind kept straying to my most recent photos. I moved to my computer in my studio and did a preliminary sketch of the hillside that fascinated me.
There are lots of nooks and crannies in the rocks to loose one's way in. I would likely simplify if I were to do it fiber.
I'm linking to the Needle and Thread Network.

It is a lovely sketch and would be fabulous in fiber. Thank you for being a part of this blog hop. So nice to meet other Canadian quilters.

I envy you your ability to draw what you see and then translate it to fabric. Really lovely!

That drawing is lovely. I bet you feel a bit like your best friend is missing now that you are done with that gorgeous piece.
