TIF – March

Once I decided the theme for this month it was easy to work with the colours.  My printer gave out such weird tones this time  that I had to cross check my fabrics against Sharon’s sample.  Now the camera has changed them.  😦   Thank goodness for digital cameras as I must have taken at least 15 shots and this is the best.

The barrow is almost chocolate brown, the greens  a mid-green  and the yellow is a Mokuba ribbon which is a deep buttery yellow with a brownish edging and the purple is more wine in colour.  The stones at the base are , surprisingly, correct.  The backgroundcloth-and 5th colour-  is black velvet.

I used cloth for the barrow bowl, leather for handle and foot and a matching button for the wheel.

  3. Very original idea. I really like it. The composition is nicely balanced.

  4. Maureen, I’ve tried three times to send you an e-mail message and your server keeps rejecting it. Have you another e-mail address I could try?

  5. Lovely detail and beautiful colour arrangement

    Oh, that’s funny. What’s also funny is that when I persisted several times, your inbox eventually let my message in!

    It’s nice to know I can communicate with you now.

    I’m reading my 18-year-old granddaughter’s third novel–dark and funny. Then I will get back to stitching. I miss it!

    Hi JoWynn, our problem has been solved and it was all my fault.

    When I have Blocked ‘pain in the neck’ emails I used the “Block all emails ending with” and that stopped ALL the @verison.net ones. Previously I just “Blocked this email” and have gone back to that.

    You know the saying ..a little knowledge is a dangerous thing… LOL it certainly applied to me.

    Sorry to have done that to you but at least it’s now sorted.

    enjoy your day, cheers Maureen

  8. I tried sending this message twice and it came back rejected the second time, too. Maybe the problem is not your computer settings but in with your server.

  9. Here’s the message I got. Maybe it will help you find the problem.
