Love the purple pear!

The Heart Art Quilt by Cathie on your March 27th is exquisite. You must love going to the mailbox!

Hi Fannie, these are going to look stunning when you've finished the series! As a general rule do you draw with the neocolours first and then stitch? Or stitch first then add colours?
Thanks for sharing your wonderful work!

Thanks, Cindy.

Hi, Carole. Almost always, I paint with the Neocolors first, then stitch.

I'm learning about color. I love this so much better than #2 but it is about preference not one being better than the other. did you use fibers on the bottom for texture? If not it sure looks like you did.

Hi, Dove. Your comments are always carefully worded to be uplifting, encouraging and caring. You sound like everybody's would-be favorite teacher--you're mine. ;-D I appreciate your words.

I did use eyelash yarn on the bottom.

With these pear series, I'm creating without too much thinking. Trying to allow imagination be my guide. Just picking colors randomly. "Structure, technicality, and rules" have been filed away for this series. Hope this make sense.
