Close up of the Old House on Fullerton Rd

I have been working on the freeze. Free machine quilting details on the houses. This old house is not far from here and the jasmine has taken over a lot of the roof. I have used textured yard and tiny beads to try and replicate the effect. The details of the house have been free machine sketched but the yarn and beads have been applied by hand. The background is some sort of acrylic which my daughter found a roll of in a dump store - not the best for free machine stitching but I think I am getting the hang of using it. I am still focusing on using materials that are recycled or repurposed. I originally thought this was some sort of acrylic canvas but now think it may be material for covering kitchen chairs. Anyway it has made an interesting substrate to work on.
