So with the help of some excellent suggestions, I ended up with this.
Gotta put cows in a Vermont landscape, right?
The shack was already fused and sewn so I couldn't put any foliage in the back of it but I do think adding these sparks of interest and lightening up the windows helps.
I'm calling it done and moving on at any rate.
I participated in a spring mug rug swap and received this wonderful piece of mug rug art from Diane. This is the back! See how she hand stitched my name, her name, her twitter handle (we are twitter buds) and the date. There are also hand stitched details all around it.
I love hexies but never took the time to learn or do them and so I do so love this mug rug.
Here it is in action on my desk at work :-)
The other thing I finished this week is a small rock cairn piece mounted on canvas.
You know I love my cairnes
