I thread painted this fellow a few years ago and thought I had lost him. I love frogs and toads and we are blessed with them on our farm with creeks, a farm pond and our koi pond. We had thousands of tadpoles in the koi pond this spring and summer. Anyway, I found him yesterday in a Ziploc bag in my basement studio (which I am working to clean up and organize)! I used metallic gold thread for his eardrums and eyes. He was worked on tulle with Sulky Solvy in a hoop. Now I've got to create a fabric and thread habitat for him! I am picturing a pond with water lilies and irises.

Linda Cobb, Spartanburg's most well known Master Gardener, gave me permission to attempt to capture a scene in her beautiful garden in thread. This thread painting on Habotai silk is finished except for matting and framing. I took a bit of artistic liberty and omitted the fence in the background and a few of the trees. Otherwise, I hope I was able to capture the 'feel' of the garden and the shrubs and flowers there. I would love to have one of these beautiful bird houses one day beside our koi pond.
