WIP Wednesday

Yes it is still Tuesday but I have a busy day tomorrow so thought I would post this now . I have lots of things in progress , mostly for the upcoming blog hops so can't share those quite yet but the time is coming quicker than I thought so I will have to get my butt in gear :-) However I do have one project I completed just this evening that I would like to share . I signed up to take part in a Water challenge landscape with a yahoo group and it had to be posted by the 30 of this month so today I went to work and finished off this small landscape. It measures just 6x8 "and oh did i have fun ,I will in all honesty say that I am happiest when creating landscapes , not saying that I am great at it just that I can put myself in a space where time stands still if that makes any sense so without further ado here is my little creation.
This landscape is from a photo that I took on Big Island a year or so ago and it has always been on my to do list so when this water challenge was announced I knew this would fill the bill so I searched for the photo and the rest as they say is history. So what do you think , I even ventured into some thread painting , oh how I wished Monika from My Sweet Prairie was close by for some help , I had no clue where to start but just kind of went for it , after all it is just a few pieces of fabric and what did I have to loose other than some time which I was thoroughly enjoying :-) So this is my project for WIP for this week and I am linking up to the Needle and Threadnetwork.  Thanks for stopping by and be sure to stop by and see what others are sharing this week.

  17. Sheila, your landscape is very pretty. I admire your stitching in the sky; I admit I'm always nervous about that part of a landscape, as there's no anchor (like a shoreline or a tree trunk) -- you just have to go for it. I hope you'll do more of these. :-)

  21. I love it! I think sometimes the best creativity comes when you just think about what you want to make and then go for it, following yourself. Lovely landscape and it makes me want to visit the spot.
    Enjoy your week,
