All done but the facing- and a peek at a snazzy hat!

It is finished now except for the facing, sleeve and label. There is a LOT of stitching on this piece!
just some of the finished detail

and here

maybe the stitching shows better here?

You've seen these before but now they ARE finished. I hope the stitching shows.
This has been a long job somehow. It took so long to get back into the routine but I am ready to work now:-) I will spray this with fixative to preserve the pencil crayon touchups before I do the facing and sleeve.

And now, for something COMPLETELY different- a man with a new hat! ( Promised I would not do this too much - but I never said I would NEVER do it!)..

TA DA...........
Sorry folks, but you NEEDED to see this!
Who's a Happy Granny then???

I am posting this to the needleandthreadnetwork.blogspot.com  Technically, none of this really qualifies as unfinished work, but .... Enjoy the other posts.

  5. It is a beautiful piece! The leaves really glow. I never thought of using fixative for colored pencils. I have used it for pastels.
    Love the hat too! What a cutie.

  7. Cute kiddo; cute hat. :-) Lovely piece. You quilt the background more densely than is my habit. Sometimes I wonder if I will be ill-judged because I don't like to quilt as densely. Is it a trend? Or a necessity?

  8. Your vineyard is incredible, but of course the baby eclipses it....

  9. I may just be able to get to Homer Watson this year - but when the weather is a bit better. So, when are going back to visit with little Oliver? Or will the family be coming up to Canada?
