 Working on my farm scene today.....plowed field will go in here but not exactly there so just pinned for now.  There are a few more trees going in around the background church.
I am liking the background more and more.  When the foreground goes in it will all come together.

Tonight my two grandson's Clay and Max are coming for a sleepover.  It will be their first in the new house so they are so excited.  Love that young exuberance!

Packed up two quilts that I sold yesterday in my Etsy shoppe to a private collector.  They are two of my favorites and I will miss them but know this collector appreciates them as much as I did.  I am very fortunate.

So you have all of the background quilted in place and now you are starting the foreground? Will the rest of the piece be quilted ?

It is beautiful and I am enjoying seeing it come to be.

Jacqueline....well no and yes.
Not all the background is in place yet...but I am close now and once finished will continue to quilt it until it is finished before going to middle ground and quilting that and then foreground and quilting that. I like quilting as I go. Some gets hidden eventually but it is so much easier then quilting around everything especially when doing complex landscapes.

Thanks for explaining. I am new to your blog and work, but find both interesting.

I really love the colors you used in the piece and background and those two paintings will look beautiful together, would love to see how she displays them.
