Then I added the border randomly fusing those pieces down. Today I quilted it with organic lines from one side to the other about a 1/4 inch apart.
So tomorrow I will begin working on that. I love making trees and bark so it will be enjoyable to work on.

Another journey has ended. This piece will be for sale in my Etsy Shoppe. I enjoyed working on this piece which came from my own photograph as shown. It was like going back there to this peaceful lake in the middle of winter and a welcome relief to all the cold we have had here in Wisconsin.
Now it is on to another piece. I hope you will continue to come with me on these journeys and watch how my work progresses each day. Thank you.

Right now I am very late making dinner! Hope you like it. Oops! Just noticed no reflection on the Loons. Will have to do that before sewing down the fog. Luckily I have not done that yet.

It has all been quilted. So next comes the focal point which is the white sailboat. I have it sketched so should be able to work on it tomorrow and place it into the scene.
I enjoy this part so much because these foreground pieces unite everything together and it is only until they go in that you begin to feel the emotion of the piece.

Next will be some lighter colored reeds and then the pier and the rowboat parked behind it. This will be difficult as I must get the angles right or it will not work. It is when you do have to use your math skills and think about angles etc. In my case that is where I need to mentally prepare myself first and wake up the other side of my brain!
Hope you all are enjoying this so far! Can you smell the water yet?

I must say I am tired today so will quit now and go watch the movie "Gravity". Rented it along with a pizza this morning. Then will work again tomorrow. I am excited to do this shoreline now and get to the water for all that goes on it. Hope you are enjoying this journey with me as I am in sharing it.

I purposely left the lighter colored pine more open as I did not want to hide the house totally which it is in reality. I am pretty satisfied with it so far and feel good that what comes next will enhance quite a bit.
