There are still lots of houses being built in my neighborhood. I love the framing stage of the construction. The house looks like a giant skeleton. The outside and the inside seem to occupy the same space.
After years of admiring construction sites, I finally took some pictures last week. The inspiration was fresh and I went right to work on this quilt.
I'm continuing to use my favorite elements... the stamped circles, the hand writing, the embroidery, the sweeping hillside and the simple house shapes...
I especially enjoyed stitching the yellow vine across the beams of the house image.
I also mastered the embroidery technique of keeping my right hand beneath the quilt and my left hand above the quilt and just passing the needle through. So efficient and meditative!
