Two new designs


I managed to paint two more sets recently. I'm still working on getting my Etsy shop set up, but in the meantime, I'll be showing you some now and then. You wouldn't believe how tiny Noah is, and painting the spots on the giraffes proved to be quite challenging.
I have an absolute weakness for pastoral scenes, so I always seem to find myself painting houses with sheep grazing. What should I paint next? Please give me your ideas.

Love, love the sheep! I love pastoral scenes too. Little white church with snow and little red cardinals? Lots of birds.

Kristen said...

I too love salbox houses & sheep. You do beautiful work. How about doing some strawberries and blossoms?

Sherry said...

Just beautiful! The house is my favorite! How about painting something with birds and/or birdhouses, feeders? Other types of houses would be great too!

Gorgeous designs Tanya. How about a Shepherdess with some sheep and a red barn in the background. Or a Saltbox Huuse with a barn star on the side like I saw in New England, with a willow tree of course. Another idea would be a straw bee skep in a meadow with bees flying around. Whatever you do will be wonderful.

What a great blog you have here, I found you through Nicole’s blog :) I love what you are stitching, samplers are so pretty. The ruler/needle case sets are very cute. What about an ocean scene, with sailboats, lighthouses, seagulls? Love the idea of it.

My favorite thing are bees and beehives. But I also like bunnies, trees, willow trees, hollyhocks, barns, and mermaids. I love your blog, just found it. Your stitching is wonderful.
