Mini Wednesday, Finally!

Greetings everyone!!!
 It's been awhile since I've posted anything with sewing ideas but today I finally get to show what I had a bit of time to accomplish between baling hay and cooking for Mr. Cowboy and his hands.
Warning.....this post is photo heavy.
Imagine me with a skillet in one hand and fabrics in another and an idea in my head. It was madness, I tell you. I'd been surfing the Net the other day and daydreaming about my new book, Landscaping Art Quilts, Step-by-Step" by Ann Loveless.

 For some reason, I've been into old trucks. I found a clipart truck that caught my eye and my head nearly exploded with a notion.
I'm using a brown grunge fabric and some old landscaping fabrics from my stash.

As always, I love to take photos when developing a project.

Watching the progress inspires me to do the best I can.

Mr. Cowboy came in from the fields and caught me playing....oh dear. He just laughed and told me to continue after I fed me, of course.

Back from feeding the masses, now I get to play with the background.

I'm not certain about that brown strip or the dotted green fabric.

I'm still not happy with the church area. Time for some sort of change.


I decided to add my signature "fence" to the scene.

I've added and blended the wild flowers around the truck. Believe it or not, Mr. Cowboy had that idea.

Close-up of the church roof. I used a black marker along with a silver one.
I don't know if you can see the head-lights but I used a fine marker to draw in the cracks.
Of course I'll have to find the time to get this all stitched down and quilted one of these days but I was so glad to get to create something.
