Progress CQJP - Morris the Mover
Corgis are a herding breed and Morris takes this seriously. He is continually gathering things throughout the house and brings them to a pile the living room and guards them.. After a while he'll wander through the house again to find something else to add to his treasures and guard again for a while... then repeat.
I deliberately chose a rather congested photo of his "stuff" and even added a few things to it... Now I am making motifs around the photo of some of his favorites......ball, hammer, various toys, food bowl, leashes etc... for a "find them in the photo" exercise.
I am particularly pleased with the ribbon treatment around the photo...In Wichita Candace Kling had a display of such folded ribbons and I loved them but hadn't tried them yet. I saw such a treatment on a pillow at Cathy's home and tried it on this block. The grosgrain was really too heavy but I loved the bright yellow with white polka dots so forged ahead anyway... Cathy even had a book of folded ribbon treatments which I found online and ordered so you will see them frequently.
