Stitching as a collage

To challenge myself back into the realm of art, and that there is an abundance of stitching in blogland lately- I decided to stitch with various objects-most vintage but some not, and see what I came up with. I chose a variety of items with a similar color scheme of cream, beige, and sage green. I didn't set out the objects, I just went with the flow. Other challenge was is that everything is stitched-no glue (OMG-I love my gluestick though). This transpired over the past few months while I waited for the house to sell and I could unpack all my favorite items that had been hiddened away for what seemed like forever.

I surprised myself with the end result; it's calming, a bit shabby and sweet. I like it. Now I am in the process of looking for a vintage frame to place around it. Dark wood to make the artwork pop.

Welcome to my new front yard--Hello Spring--it's soooo nice to see you!

I've got swap pictures to post; craft room progress; and hopefully a large mixed media painting for my little one's room. Stay tuned..I hope your Spring is as bright as it is here in South Carolina.
