TIF February - light at the end of the tunnel


Tonight I've been watching the Oscars on the TV and playing with a background for a postcard for the TIF challenge, see sidebar link. I was in 2 minds about the size, but since there are only 4 days till the end of the month now, I thought I'd be sensible and work small. The song "Autumn Leaves" by Nat King Cole has been haunting me all month, I catch myself "singing" it out loud sometimes, and that's scary because I'm not a great singer, and sometimes I forget the words. Bob the quilting cat just looks bemused, and luckily the 2 Siamese fighting fish love me as long as I feed them every night ! I can't believe that I performed in 2 Australian musical plays when I was younger, though in the chorus no-one can hear you hit an occasional wrong note, VBG.

I plan to stitch on this background over the next few days, add some other embellishments and perhaps some words. I'm hoping that come the first of March, I'll be so occupied with the new TIF theme or colours that I'll forget Autumn Leaves for a while !!!

Oh help! Now I am singing Autumn Leaves, too! Well, it's a beautiful song and a beautiful piece so far. The colors are perfect.

I do like the colors, the little stitch you are working with looks almost like feathers. Your work is very nice. I didn't know anybody still remembered Nat King Cole! I love Autum Leaves. LOL Rene

the colors are so warm and you piece looks so nice. I think it is nice to see these colors in the winter (for me anyway), guess you are ready for cooler weather.
