Illustration Friday-- Plain/stitch/Tales and Legends

Illustration Friday-- Plain/stitch/Tales and Legends

Previous Entry Share Next Entry

I think this is the longest I've gone without drawing an illustration friday challenge since I started, back in 2005. My excuse is that I was coding my website and I had to figure out how to do that before I could work on it. But it's all done now, except for the very important step of having Dan-the-computer-guru make sure it all works, so I'm back.

Maybe it's the Pennsylvania in me, but when I thought of Stitch and Plain, I knew this was the image I had to do. Amish women are usually quilting something when they aren't working, and I can't help but think they're quilting their world into every piece they make.

And of course, the people who live in the houses at the base of the seam she's stitching must have some Tales and Legends of what she's doing up there....
(I know, that's cheating. I'll do another Tales and Legends image this weekend that's more on topic!)

  • Hooray!! I love them to. The work their way into my stories and illos a lot, as a result... Do you do quilting yourself?
    • I'm not too good at sewing, but I did make one quilt top, just to try it. Maybe I'll go to a guild meeting someday. :>)

      I went to four quilt shows last year, and I just read the latest Elm Creek Quilts novel, "The New Year Quilt", by Jennifer Chiaverini. (And I wrote a quilt story to send to Highlights, too. )
