Okay ... they are not straight but I just wanted to see what they looked like together for the moment ......

............................ and I definitely need some more colour so the choice for October will be ..........

I have just bought a book by Thom Atkins called 'Beading Artistry for Quilts' and I would love to follow his technique with this piece.

October possibilities

Whew, maybe I will get this done before the month ends.... ha, ha!

I love the colour and simplicity of this one.  Maybe as I have been working in greys for a while.

This just talks to me ...... but I am undecided.

Back to shades of grey again .... but I do like the composition.

I would like to hang them together on a wall so I think at this stage I need to put them all out and see where I am going and what I need to help them all come together.

Completed but not finished!!  It is on the canvas but I need to finish off the sides etc.

Printed on silk background and then the actual anchor/chain is painted applique.  Because I want to keep them all as stitched 'artworks' I could not get away without the visible stitching. It did look a bit like a photograph before so I suppose it works.  This is one that has the edge as a photograph than in reality.  How does one correct that???
