I started this wall hanging in Judy Sisneros' class, I think it was called 'Strippy Landscapes', or something like that? I can't remember, it was probably almost 20 years ago! You can see the water and foreground are strips, simply stitched. This was the technique being taught. Then I appliquéd the boat on top. It is a fairly simple technique to get a relatively realistic result. Below is the picture that inspired the project.
That's a photo of the Triton cove, Hood Canal, WA. where our cabin is located (at very low tide). The wooden boat is our 4 oar row boat almost beached in the eel grass. I think my version is a reasonable rendering?!
I don't know why it took me so long to finish. I think it was mostly that I did not have any place in my house that I wanted to display it. But it seemed just right for the cabin since it was so close to the spot that inspired it?!
I hope you all had a wonderful summer, sewing or not!!!
