...a tiny landscape...

...just fiddled about with a piece of leftover hand-dyed cloth...






...sometimes the smallest things...

...give the most pleasure....


(7" x 3" - 3 hours stitching :-)

This reminds me of the cherryblossom petals that are being carried away by the wind, as I look out of my window.

Right you are... - not an hour ago I added 2 words to my intentions list: small things... ha, ha - a pleasant thing to do, as the outside world seems to be getting bigger + bigger, and smaller all the same...

Nicely done! Good to see the amount of time logged as well.

No matter how hard I try to make larger things....

...if I stitch true to my soul...

...they end up being small!


But small is fine....and finishing a piece in an evening leaves tomorrow a blank slate for more creations to begin.

Maybe I'll enter a "really small" phase sometime soon :-)

fiddling about? leftover cloth? whatever you touch turns to beauty my dear friend. Very inspiring as always. Hope stand E52 is filling up nicely. Looking forward to seeing you again later in the year x

I love small too and the seeding on the bottom is texturally lovely. It's always sobering to note how much time even the smallest fragments take...

Hands down, Apple's app store wins by a mile. It's a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I'm not sure I'd want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.
