Green Aubusson on Printed Canvas - Week 3

Today is time to show the update on Green Aubusson. I started working on the background and picked up this shadow of green color.

Haven't done too much and a reason is that last Saturday the temperature finally dropped down to 77 F and we decided to have a mini vacation - to spend some time in Idaho hiking, fishing, riding bikes. We were advised to go to Steven's Lake.

When we arrived to Wallace, ID - the closest town to that lake - it appeared that nobody ever heard about the Steven's Lake and nobody could advise us where to start looking for it. The magical Internet advised us to go to Mullan, ID that is 5-7 minutes from Wallace by a car. Little dying town Mullan looked pretty fricky and scary with only one motel with broken windows and ripped wallpaper that you can see through the open front door, and a gas station out of business. There was nobody to ask about the Steven's Lake. So, we turned around and went back to the hotel in Wallace.

Later we knew that Wallace, Idaho is considered to be the Silver Capital of the world, Center of the Universe

and the entire city is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Couldn't resist not to take a picture of a piking abandoned bus close to the local old cemetery. It reminded me a scene with an abandoned car that SANS!!!inator made recently with her helper Nat.

Since we couldn't find the Steven's Lake, on the way back we stopped at the beautiful Rose Lake

and my boys caught some catfish - yummy!!!

After that we took an exit to check out the Couer-d-Allene lake and went for a little hiking on the Beautiful Bay with scenic view. This is only small part of that amazingly huge lake.

Next day evening we came back home and the city met us with a thunderstorm, lightnings and rain. The sunset was beautiful, unfortunately my camera didn't capture all incredible colors we saw that night in the sky.

The rest of the week I spent in the bed trying to get rid off cold and temperature that I got after our little vacation.

Now, back to stitching - still a lot of work!

How was your week?

I have to confess, I always look at all the pictures first f a post and then I start to read. When I saw the bus in the woods, I thought, hey! That's something I can build! heh heh heh :). Then I read and saw that it was meant for me and Nat! THANK YOU :):):)

And where is this gorgeous city?? Wow! I have to go check out the map now. Natalia, will you know anything about living in Memphis Tennessee?

PS how can so many fishes be caught ??? LOL

Maybe this would be something for a Hollywood movie - "The Mystery of the Hidden Lake" (LOL). You were right to take that pic of the bus, it really looks as if Sans! and Nat were adding a bus to their fantastic project (I still refuse to call that piece of art a junkyard). - The green you've chosen looks great!

ha-ha-ha Sans! I do the same: first studying the images and only then reading.

Good luck finding that city on the map!:)))

Why Memphis Tennessee? Are you planning finally to come to the USA?

Natalia's Fine Needlework said...

Birgit, lol, but now I feel like I MUST go back and find that lake, and may be then we will make a movie "The Mystery of the Hidden Lake" or "Why nobody knows where the Steven's Lake is..."

Don't you think it is crazy to think about Sans! even on the vacation? Actually she captivated my attention with her last masterpiece.

Secretly from her I am adding my own details to her project in my imagination. For example, I see a frog on the top of one of the cars.
Do you? "grin"
