Happy Belated Thanksgiving to all of my fellow Canadian bloggers

I was blessed with a visit from my elder daughter Jillian and her adorable Yorkie/Maltese cross "Maude".  It's a long drive from our 'hometown' so any time my family makes the trip, it's always cause for "thanks-giving."

Along with lots of laughs, we enjoyed the autumn weather and after  compulsory Saturday shopping and putting together  a Halloween (steampunk) costume for her, we had lunch and picked delicious strawberries at Broxburn Farms.  Sunday was all about relaxing and preparing Thanksgiving dinner. 

I thought I'd post images of my latest digital turned cloth project today.   The cloth 4 x 4 inch version is for my monthly collaborative project with the Oh My Gothic group - this month for Heather Robinson, fellow Canadian,  a long term blog buddy,  and sweet friend.  I have managed to keep up with this commitment, but have long fallen behind on blog visits.  I plan to put some time aside this week for nothing but that!

Below images include the 8 x 10 original digital collage followed by the 4 x 4 cloth square front and back as well as a few fun close ups.

This list of image credits are long and include big thank yous to  Finecrafted Designs, Holliewood Studios, Tumble Fish Studio, Tangie Baxter,  Art by January and Nicole Perry.

I'd like to be

A belated Thanksgiving to you too dear lady, and what an incredible design you have here, I especially love the stitched version. It's just as lovely as the piece I won in your giveaway :)

It's hard to believe that all that beauty is on just a 4x4 inch cloth!

Happy belated Thanksgiving to you too. Sounds as if you had a lovely weekend visit. I really like the 4x4 digital format - always enjoy seeing your transfer from digital to fabric - inspiring!
