Halifax Harbour

Several years ago (2010) I was on the Dartmouth side of the harbour taking photos with my two oldest great nephews. We stopped at the Woodside Community Centre and walked down to the shore. The harbour was shrouded in fog but the Halifax building tops rose above the fog and the low clouds were well defined on this dullish day.

I filed the image away as one of my better photos. I came across it a couple of months ago while perusing photos looking for images that might be suitable for wall art pieces. I stashed this one in that folder.

I enlarged it a bit, printed it on fabric and today I began assembling it. So far I have a base image, with a narrow inner border and piping. I’ve chosen fabric for the wide outer border. I haven’t yet begun any thread painting – I have a feeling this is one of those situations that wants less, rather than more. The challenge is I can’t take out stitching once I’ve done it because the needle holes show. So each stitched element has to be carefully thought out.

I’m also still working on Morning Conversation but today this image called out to me so I worked on it instead.
