Summer Afternoon fabric collage...

Happy Monday!

As we wrapped up the tour of historical homes yesterday (photos of those houses to follow on my next post), I was inspired to complete one of the fabric collage pieces that I had pieced together awhile ago. I guess that seeing all of those old porches this weekend made me want to start with this one, as I love the group in the picture standing on an old porch.

If you remember, in one of my December posts I shared a bunch that I had pieced together but had never finished, though I did do some of the hand stitching on our trip to Florida. In any case, I am making an attempt to now add the final embellishments, bind, and back them all, while simultaneously working on another piece for my granddaughter.

It's a rainy week here, so the lighting was not the best when I took these photos. You might have to click on them to make them larger.

By the way, the photo is worn looking because I actually used a photo transfer using the transparency and matte gel process. I love the effect of these!

Once in a while I like to work outside of my safety zone and use brightly-colored fabrics, expecially if it suits the mood of the picture.

Thanks for stopping by!
