I found a bag of embroideries that I think will make Great Wall hangings in my cardboard castle. But I didn’t like the colors. Markers fixed that.
The photos show the new colors first and the pinky before colors in the later photos.
Amy Wilson, my dear friend and a great travel companion has died. Many of you will know her blog Thread in Hand. She had something new to share everyday! She made friends wherever she went and she had a sweet tooth like no one else I’ve ever known. Here are just a couple pictures from the “Casket Tour” in 2015(?). Amy you will be missed.
Just like the rest of the world my building project is behind schedule. The main dining hall has little bits of this and that sitting on my table but nothing ready to install. So the kids will be delighted when they see their new bedding for the dormitory. Cardboard, of course, clothes pins and wood beads make up the bed frames with mattresses, pillows and blankets.
I have rearranged the buildings of The Village. The theater stage has been relocated to another part of my studio, the forest is gone and a castle is slowly taking shape in that space. The boxes in the photo are the heavy weight boxes that my wood boxes/caskets arrived in over the years. They are arranged over a cellar area.
I have also decided to put some embroidered hangings on some of the exterior building walls. The little flower embroidery is stitched in silk chenille and I hope is visible in one of pictures.
