Besides stitching I just relaxed. I am having trouble walking again but after nearly 2 weeks of restricted movement I was able to get around a bit. I took my camera around the site and saw all the familiar scenes.
Looking out over the escarpment into the morning mist.
The trees against the bright blue of the sky.
A pee wee singing a song.
And other birds up high in the trees.
There was quite a wind blowing and this beautiful nest was dislodged. Poor bird will have to start again.
And although there is a drought and everything is dry and dusty still there was beauty in what was left of the gardens. Some of these photos I would like to use as inspiration for my thread painting, (that is progressing very slowly.)
Here are a few shots that are contenders.
And some details within shots that show promise.
I could smell this Star Jasmine long before I saw it.
And the bees were very busy.
Now that I have the images I want I can put them into a drawing program and trace them off, or, just trace them using tissue paper. But how am I going to work out what all the colour are? Guess what? I found an App which will do it for me, then I can match the international colour numbers to DMC threads. The App is called "Color View Finder".
Isn't that cool. You can buy the app from the app store.
