That seems to be the current theme. Smaller, simpler pieces, depicting things bigger than they actually are. Pine cone is 18"
Today is the last day that you can enter the thread drawing. It has been so much fun to read all the comments and ideas for thread storage. Surprising number of people using old library card catalog drawers. I just loved that idea. Wonder where one gets their hands on such a thing. As it stands, there are currently just a few short of 300 comments on the thread blog. I wouldn't have imagined such a thing. I hope it has proven to be good exposure for Connecting Threads, which was, of course what they were hoping for and fine with me. I don't make a practice of promoting commercial endeavors but this was a win-win. Somebody gets some free thread, more people know about it, we all get to read everybody's thread organizing ideas and the business maybe gains some new customers. I only do this if it is something good!
One last photo before I go. This is our baby fig tree. All those " knobs" will be figs. I'm pretty excited. Have you ever eaten fresh figs? Better than anything.
