The tooth is gone

Ah, finally I have had the nasty tooth out and am feeling much better.  I haven't got much done in the last week because of it, but I have progressed with the leaf print I was working on.
I have finished all the free motion.  I scribbled a lot ith a pale thread in the background and i think it looks very lacy.
Here are a few close ups.  /You can click on them to make them larger.
I want to add some hand stitch and beads and perhaps a dragonfly.  We will see.

I went for a short walk this morning, now that the weather is cooler.
The little bits of green are telling me Autumn is not far away.  The creek is very low at this time of the year, but I love the way the rocks are exposed.  In spring, they are well under the water.
I think I might need to print one of these out for my sketchbook, and work on it.  Perhaps I should think about a series based on the creek, which is always in the back of my head, because I can always hear the water flowing.  But at present I have too many other things to finish, so sketchbook work is a good idea to do so I don't forget.

Happy Creating!


  1. good to read the offending tooth is no more. Your leaves are delicate looking, very nice. You are lucky to have the creek so nearby and yes can see you crating some nice pieces from it

  2. the pale thread in the background almost makes it sparkle. Very delicate work!

  3. so glad to hear that the pain is now gone - a toothache has to be one of the most disruptive things going! Your leaf piece is so delicate and lacy - very effective job you have done What a pretty little creek - a wonderful source of inspiration.

  4. I am in love with your thread painting. Those leaves are magical in your hands.

    It's good that your tooth is now only a memory.

    So, if you are headed to autumn, does that mean spring may actually come this year in my part of the world?
