it's been a while since I've done something "just for fun"
this weekend we had plans for a lot of different activities, but with a lot of rain and a lot of closed roads, most of those plans have gone by the wayside
so this afternoon I started working on the background of this piece that I did the original sketch for back in May
it doesn't look like much right now, but I'm please with the way it's going
it was kind of nice to feel no pressure, just to enjoy the process -- I plan to do thread painting on this one, but unlike the pumpkins that have given me such trouble, there will be no raggedy edges here as I'm doing needle turned applique to put this one together
it's all about finding a technique that works for what I like the look of
a step in the right direction!!
