I am way overdue for a progress update. I also know that all my followers support me so much with words of encouragement. So here goes
As part of Theme-a-licious March Madness I started...
Father Christmas - Joan Elliott. I chose this fabric color because it reflects a kinda/sort of winterish sky. I wanted something darker but this was the best I could find locally..
The Gardener - Joan Elliott.
This fabric is really baby blue with clouds and it seemed like a better choice than cream colored fabric. I am not sure how it will look.
I also started Eastern Promise by Joan Elliott...
I chose red Aida for this project instead of white because it just seemed like the right think to do. I was torn because red is more strongly associated with Chinese art. But I also did a little research and found that in Japanese culture, red has a strong association with the sun and red and white together are associated with auspicious or happy occasions. So I went ahead and used it. We shall see if it really works when it's done.
That's all for now.
