August choices

While I am on a roll here are August possibilities.

Love the simplicity of the pic but again I am drawn to flora!

Although I love the pic ....not sure whether it will work!

This could work!

This one talks to me. Different content and an A4 on its side.  Possible.

I am actually spoilt for choice  this month. There were quite a few more possibilities but I had to narrow it down to these four.  Now .......................


My life is too complicated at the moment and too many things (lots of good things!) are getting in the way and ambushing my deadlines. but ..................

July is finished but not completed. i.e. still needs to be mounted but it will not alter what you see here.

I am very happy with the result and cannot believe how easily it worked out. 

I printed my cropped picture onto a silk backing and then literally stitched into it .... a bit like paint by numbers, fantastic! 

My problem is the mounting. Although I am using a small 8 x 8inch artists canvas the silk backing sheet is fractionally smaller.  I might cut out the machine embroidery and mount onto another piece of fabric.  Need to think about this one.
