- Return to the Land of Flood and Drought

Retrospective (5/28/2016)

Patch #147 ...


comes from a piece of muslin dyed with Mountain Pinks ...



last summer ...



And there's still plenty left to work that landscape piece that Grace suggested.

Original Post

Inspired by Judy Martin's recent post and armed with variegated floss, I returned to stitching on the Land of Flood and Drought ...


Plus Don's latest before ...


and after ...


Addendum: as sun streamed through the windows, we were amazed to learn on the evening news that 9" of rain fell 50 miles north of us in Austin today.

Your flood and drought piece looks amazing. Would love to see the whole piece one of these days.

Thanks much ... it is a long time coming, but that enables me to find new ways to work with it. I'm learning as I go ...
