Photos, at last
Finally, the colors you see above emerged. It doesn't look so much like a vineyard now but is more the colors I see around me during spring here. (And believe it or not, spring has finally arrived. There was snow at the first of the week along with more rain, but today it is to be 80 degrees.)
The lilies of the valley have finished but the phlox that was here when I bought my house over twenty years ago are in fragrant bloom. The peonies that are usually blooming generously on Memorial Day are still in bud, ditto the Peace roses. It's too early for any of the roses in my garden although I have seen a few in bloom around town.
I have begun to weave this new warp as you can see:
A little later I will photograph the pieces from the last series. They are here with their matt boards so that I can sew their upper edges to it. I use only acid-free, all rag matts for these pieces and conservation glass in their frames. I have, in all, six pieces to stitch before Tuesday. I learned long ago that the color of the matt board is critical and the choices I made seem to me to be just right.
Back to work!
