Today, I exerted myself somewhat and completed the exercise that Penne gave me, back in early July.

I had determined , that, for once, I would FOLLOW the tutor’s plan, and NOT DEVIATE.

Yes, I really planned to imitate her steps as far as possible……well, as far as tone and colorways were concerned.

I kept to Penne’s version as  close as I was able with the fabrics I had  at hand.

Having completed the major section—–the landscape!

I think I deviated a little with my “framing” of the piece, with a quarter inch “frame” of an imperial purple and gold trim.

I then used a mottled (shades of) purple and lime as the larger frame.

I must admit, I then made a boo-boo……and I needed to ADD another beading frame:   in this case,a lavender “mini framing”.

Earlier on, I suggested the possibility of adding either Trapunto/padded “rocks” in the darkish purple background, or some gemstone “rocks”…..with the idea of adding a focal point in the foreground fabric.

In the end, using some flowers from a lei, I added flowers.

I am satisfied with the 3D effect. Whether I add some leaves, or some leaf shaped shell pieces remains to be seen.

But once again, I need thank Penne for stretching my horizons.


  1. Beautiful!
