Gosh darn it, I hate it when I break a needle thread painting!  I was working on the trees around the barn, and SNAP!   Away she goes.  Stupid, stupid, stupid needles.  Don’t they know they’re supposed to last forever?


You can’t tell from the picture where the thread painting is… unless you get up close to it.  Then it becomes obvious.  Nothing has been done in the foreground yet, and I know it looks kind of strange the way it is.  It will all look better when it’s done.  Trust me!

Don’t know what “thread painting” is?  Pop over to Nancy Price’s website and take a look. I do my thread painting a little more informally than Nancy does, but I love her work.

Inspiration comes from many different places.  Where do you get yours? I save pictures on my computer that inspire me.  Here are just a few of the hundreds I’ve collected.
