The Unveiling

I have been working on a piece for my youngest son's wedding, which is this Saturday the 30th.

I took two photos and combined them to make this. My friend made me a silkscreen of the two of them,which came out fabulous. I colored and stitched them separately and then cut them out to apply on the background and did a lot of stitching, which was fun. I also put in a blue bird of happiness :)

So this is Mike & Renee starting the walk down the road of life together.

And the unveiling

Neighbor - Google Earth View

We live in a bit of a rural area – not many neighbors, so I thought it would be fun to do a Google Earth view of a neighborhood. My house is included in this view, left hand bottom corner, but most of the neighbors are those who I hold dear in my heart, rather than those who actually live near me.

I started with a background fabric that gave a forest feel. Then I used Misty Fuse to add some roads. I then used some of my fusing scraps to make the little houses, some with pools, and used fabric paint to create trees. All the houses needed roofs and chimneys. I had fun creating my neighborhood. Stitching all around the houses and roads added a bit of separation from the background fabric. 

I hope one of the houses looks like yours, for you are a neighbor.
