Monument Valley Interpreted Update

It's been almost three weeks since my last posting on my current project.  I thought it was time to show it again. taught me better but I have to admit, I didn't leave much border.  Well, you can deal with that some other day.  Don't put this on your calendar for framing yet.  I still have a ways to go!

Late Summer Riding

There's those who are already saying that fall is here.  True, the mornings are cool and the fog is starting to linger in the sunrise.  But today, well, today was a beautiful summer day.  Riding in the fall means trying to find that perfect clothing combination where you aren't too hot but not too cold.  Today, I didn't have to worry about any of that.  My jacket stayed folded on the back carrier and the sun kept me warm even though my clothing was wet with sweat.  Late summer may not be as colorful as other times of the year but there is still beauty all around.  Here's a few photos of what I saw today.

Yes, the dog days of summer are over.  But fall still doesn't have every day in its grasp.

Blackwork - Monument Valley Interpreted

Monument Valley Interpreted is shaping up pretty good.  Here is my progress.  Just in case you forgot, it was started on June 21, 2013.  It's still got a long way to go but at least it actually looks like something now.  I think the mountains do show depth, something I was sort of wondering.  Of course, the back stitching/outlining will add the final touch.  Thanks, Dad, for opening my eyes!  Why use my glasses, a coffee cup or a coin when I can use a ruler to show you the size!!! ha ha  

Sometimes a question.....stitch or watch the sunset!
