Something there is that doesn't love a wall...



Finally, I'm back at the frame and tackling the challenge of finishing the wall.

Our German student has gone and we are returning to some sense of normalcy after packing in as many American experiences as was possible in 10 days.

As for the wall, the printed organza blocks seems to have worked in bringing the wall forward a bit.



And the adhesive used to fuse the organza to the paper that goes through the printer was just enough to prevent the organza from fraying as I cut them into blocks.

Next up is Mrs. Rose.  I have a lot of figuring to do for her since I haven't yet decided how to create her.

Until next time, have a great day.

Lovely! And I thought of you yesterday when I was at Michaels - they have some Audrey Hepburn Breakfast at Tiffany's notepads etc. in the $ section!

The blocks are fantastic. I had to go back to see the wall before you added this technique. I'm always amazed at your knowledge of stitching and fabric manipulation...there seems to be no task too big or tedious in order to bring your vision to life.

I'm looking forward to seeing Mrs. Rose.

xx, Carol

Your little concrete blocks are gorgeous and with your stitching they really do look like the wall. Creative Hearts are Happy Hearts...

Your project is wonderful and so very creative! It looks just like a cinder block wall! Great job!

It's really coming along! I really like what you've done with the mirror. Can't wait to see the next reveal....8-)

I am so in awe of your work. I want to be you when I grow up (and I want Jack to be MY kid, too)

Perhaps your enforced period of tourism has refreshed you and reinvigorated you - I'm sure ideas for Mrs Rose were bubbling away in the back of your mind all the time!

Looking forward to meeting Mrs. Rose. I get so many ideas from these blocks of yours.

Susan, I have been following along with your blog quite often and really love the effect coming forth with the addition of your organza blocks to the wall...really brings the whole thing to life. Colleen

It is SUCH fun to "watch" you create!

Once again you are so creative. Your wall looks so real.
Glad you had a nice time with the exchange student. We had a German student once too.
