MORE Progress ~ Almost finished though!

Here's an update on the progress of my stitching
(don't know what to call it just yet...mixed media? any suggestions??)

I added 2 different black repro cotton calico prints to the bottom ~
then got a little crazy with headstones, vines and leaves....
more and more 'stuff'...
 I added the word 'october' and more calico pumpkins...
a little 'people' garden if you would....
 then I added grass & weeds near the headstones using Kreinik metallic threads ~ love them!
see the pumpkin's faces?
 added details to the headstones like words & dates, urns,
angel-head and willows...
"at rest"
 embellished a little more to the pumpkins by adding wool stems and thread...
straight stitch, satin stitch, fly stitch...all primitively done of course!

and,
here's what she'll look like once she's framed ~



pretty, no?
this piece is huge ~ measures approx. 36" long (3 feet!) by 18 1/2" wide...
I found the old frame whilst out & about with Joan & Flea
(also known as "The Dream Team")
and didn't know exactly what I would use it for ~ but know i know!

I can't believe that we'll be heading out to Michigan for the
show in a week ~
I'm working like a maniacal squirrel fueled by gallons of early grey & green tea
(caffiene is a wonderful thing!)
 
Let me know your thoughts on my progress, won't you?
Have a *SPARKLING* day my friends!!!
 
Blessings from Notforgotten Farm...

AMAZING IS WHAT I WOULD CALL IT. I WOULD LOVE TO OWN THIS! The frame you chose is perfect!

Perhaps "Fabric Fine Art"

It is truly gorgeous Lori. Would love to create this if you were to consider doing it a pattern.

Best of luck with your upcoming show.

Lori....Lori...Lori...I just don't have the words to do this piece justice. Fantastic, amazing, and divine all sound good but they seem so ordinary.... This piece needs a word that means all those and more and I just can't think of one. I know I'm not the only one who would love to own it that's for sure. :0)
