    Wall Hanging - Takkakaw Falls, B.C.

    Finished this a few days ago. Takkakaw Falls is near Golden BC and one of my sister's favourite hiking areas. She sent the photo. This piece is 24"x30". These are so much fun. Enjoy!

    What a nice piece! I have to get better with detailing on my machine. What you did looks so good.

    BTW we'd love to see you over on the 'Art Q challenge thread. It is meant to be an inspirational/swap techniques thread;

    This is awesome! This fascinates me, so I've been buying this sort of fabric for the past few months, bits and pieces, remnants, etc. and will give it a try soon.
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)
