A daughter getting married surely is distracting !!  It was a beautiful beach wedding and my daughter and new son (in law) are relaxing in Jamaica !  Back to normal now, I think.

The piece I am showing is a work in progress.  It has been in progress for quite a while.

My desire is to work on some more nostalgic pieces.  (Is my age showing ??)  This is from a photo taken by a friend of mine quite a few years ago (  transistor radio is a dead give-away) .   I love the photo.  They seem to be part of an idyllic time and place.  Makes me want to go there.  Anyway,  I have a long way to go on this one.  I will update my progress as I go.  I am determined to finish this  by the end of the month if not sooner.  Refusing to use anything but fabric in my work (no pen, ink, paint or marker for defining lines or shading)  makes it a bit daunting and even frustrating at times, but overall,  I love the challenge ,  or I wouldn't continue to attempt it.
Hope to show an update soon !!
