More Mountains

Here's another one of my little pieces for the Tillamook, OR show. Actually this shot is from Mt. Adams, in the state of Washington. The plants in the foreground are Hippie Grass. I don't know the botanical name, but that's what it's called and is a wildflower that is prevalent in the North West. It has long strands of fluffy stuff that blow in the wind. I'm guessing that someone thought that it looked like a hippie's long hair or beard. I did see it in person when I was out there. It was rather difficult to depict in thread. This one is named, "Hippie Grass at Mt. Adams"

Norma, that's a beautiful piece. Is it mounted to stretched canvas? I have read that technique being discussed on Quiltart - had not seen it 'matted' like that. Really beautiful....Johnni

Thank you. Yes, the piece is made on Timtex, just like a postcard and then stitched by hand onto the canvas. It gives importance to a small piece, I think.

They are both lovely. I like how "BIG" they have become on the canvas.
