big stitch trip

 
 As happens when the gaudy linen's picked
shred after shred away
 the purple there
 
 
phoenician red, most brilliant of all dyes,
is lost asunder
ravelled thread by thread
Hence canst perceive the fragments die away
from out their colours
long ere they depart
back to the old primodials of things
 

Lucretius....of the nature of things

Beautiful scenery to go along with your wonderful stitching. The stitching weaves together the assorted parts nicely. Very inspiring! Thanks.

Must have been a loooong road trip, you have many different areas stitched up.

The final picture...no words for that one.

We are still on the road - Manitoulin to Ottawa, then Montreal, now Toronto for some visits with children and art. Also, Ned had a meeting. x

Travelling and stitching.............you lucky one!
I can only do one at a time.

I love your composition(s). There is something soothing about those stitches holding the pieces together.
