Class pictures and McDonalds

In this class we were to make a Wisteria Vine using some material around the home. The green below was a bag with avocados. I cut it into strips and wove it in with the heavy brown yarn and trellis. The flowers are silk ribbon French knots.

The wooly, French knot sheep decided to leave the flock for the grass is greener on the other side!

Mix techniques....wheel barrow is tatted filled with silk ribbon flowers, long and short butterfly and bunny.

Our McDonalds will be destroyed in Jan for a new building. Sad as this is one of a few that were first built.  The paintings were done on the walls by a local artist. He painted may murals through out the town.  More pictures next week.  Tucumcari, New Mexico is on RT 66.

Thank You for visiting me and love your comments. Looking forward to seeing all the beautiful projects people are working on at Kathy's Quilts    Slow Stitching Sunday ...

Mr. Rooster turned into an embroidery motif. The Threads just seemed to keep on flowing!! So I appliqued a group of flowers for the Broderie Perse project in Kath Shawkl's class and used simple outlining on the outside and inside with beads.

Slowly getting the Christmas decorations up. We were the first to put the outside lights up and now the rest of the neighborhood has lights. The church, Santa house and the train station are needle work on plastic canvas with a music box.  The small china Santa in front was given to me at a bank for completing my Christmas Fund when I was 12. They had a special deal for children so they had money for Christmas. The Christmas fence has been in the family for a very long time. My grandmother gave it to Mother and believe it came from Germany. I would say it is over 100 years.

Thank you everyone for visiting me and leaving a nice comments. Wishing you all a blessed week.
