Through Rose Colored Glasses


So far I have been able to stick with my resolution to spend at least a few hours a day working. We will see how long I can keep this up! I have finished a piece I started in Pamela's class... this is a landscape using 2 colors. I have called it Through Rose Colored Glasses. I did (for me) lots of hand stitching... so its now a toss up which I detest most... hand stitching or machine quilting! Comments are always welcome.
I have also been working on my b/w challenge piece. Working in b/w is much more difficult than working in color. I have had to come up with other ways to create the punch. While I am not thrilled with the piece, I may grow to like it with more work. If nothing else, it is a learning experience.

This looks great!

I love the colors, they are so harmonious without being monochromatic, especially the sky.

I had a hard time with the b/w also! I chucked two half finished quilts and went back to my old faithful friend, self portraits. I found you can't just do what you would do in color and automatically turn it into b/w; black and white is a world unto itself.

Very nice! Both the hand stitiching and the machine quilting really add dimension to your piece. And I really like all the little tidbits on the beach.
Great job.

Sherryl.. this is beautiful, I LOVE this version of it. Your hard work and determination paid off... in spades.
I have to compliment you on your choice of fabrics for your color scheme.. they work so well together.
I still have mine rolled up, but winter is coming..
Good job and thank you for inviting us to look and comment.
