Finished the "Gazebo Goodness" stitchery...

This is the wonderful photo I found on Brenda's blog one day.
(posted here with her permission)
I thought "wow! What a great photo! That would make an
awesome stitchery!"Don't know what I was thinking there, as I really am not one for stitchery often... 8-)
Love stitchery though, and I always have the best of intentions when I save all the lovely patterns that you, my blogging friends, share... 8-)
Don't look too close at mine... 8-)

So this was my rough draft that I had emailed to Brenda, as she loves sketchings and such... I thought she would get a kick out of it....and then she went a posted it on her blog for all the world to see!!! Yikes! 8-)

Then I thought, "Now I have to do something with it!"
Thus I drew out a good draft of the gazebo...

Once done the good draft, I traced it onto my fabric, and as I stitched, I did do some changes, so you may see some markings on the fabric that is not stitched. It will come out in the wash....
I think I may have gone into a little tooooooo much of the photo detailing... for a stitchery, and I may draw up a simpler one yet. But, it is none the less done, I think, and now I will decide what to do with it. I have found some other lovely photos on some of your blogs that may get drawn and stitched to accompany this gazebo... 8-)

I will share the pattern, if someone can tell me what route is best to do that... and if anyone is interested... Maybe email? 8-)

Thanks for the lovely photo/inspiration Brenda! 8-)

Bravo...Bravo....I am applauding here. Your second sketch was really well done and your stitchery made the photo look even better. Really nice work Myra!

Brenda said...

Oh Myra!! That is a beautiful piece of work!!! It's lifelike!! You did yourself proud on that one - and to think it started out as a picture you saw... you have talent my friend. Real talent.

You are one talented lady! I wish I were more artistic.

Wonderful job Myra. It turned out just as beautiful as I expected. Your talents are unending. The table topper link is not the right one, at least it seemed to not work for me. The quilty things at Geta Grams's were stunning.

Myra, I think your stitchery is wonderful! I don't think the detailing you put in is overdone, it's just perfect.

Guðrún said...

The stitchery is beautiful. Do you think it has too many details? It doesn´t look like it.

Kerri said...

That looks great. You are amazing. Keep it up, you will have a quilt design together soon. Fantastic.
