The most beautiful sound of yarn being broken off.


Click on image for greater details. I would do some things differently the next time, but for flying without a pattern and not being able to visualize how anything would look before it already did, I’m pretty pleased overall. (IDIDITIDIDITIDIDITIDIDIT!!!)

The doorknob! It still needs the doorknob! Almost forgot! And leaves for the flower.

That tire swing. It’s great up close. At thumbnail size I’m a whole lot less sure. Maybe I should add the real-life rock ledge nearby. On the other hand, the clouds for all their intricacies look like a burst of whiteflies chasing a sparrow at thumbnail size, so, hey.

It needed more flowers.

It’s already got ribbing at the sides to match the top and bottom pattern-wise, even if the colors don’t. I’m pretty sure I have enough yarn; would you add dark blue ribbing to the sides to finish framing the picture? Or just leave it be?

Add the doorknob. And the ribbing. And let it go. It’s lovely

It is a beautiful thing you have done. My word, it’s just beautiful.
Add the doorknob, do you have time to get black to do some side ribbing? That would frame it like a picture. Then send it off to where it will be admired and loved.
You’re amazing!

Wow, you did it! Wow!

Add the doorknob, but I don’t think it needs framing at the sides.

And don’t worry about how it looks in thumbnail size–they’re going to looking at it close up!

Yes, I would add the dark blue ribbing frame. And probably more flowers. But that’s just me, it is absolutely stunning as is! So you could just finish that doorknob and be done. Congratulations!

Some people just draw their house and barn with crayons. That’s the easy way . . . .
