Here is Kim’s interpretation of the July-August theme:

In Kim’s words:

I really liked this photo. The lines in it were of great interest. Right now, I am also working on my final piece for Mastercraftsman and am doing some pulled work. I decided that pulled work would be just the thing for this photo.

I used 25 count Dublin linen (cream) and outlined a curl like in the photo with a variegated brown pearl cotton #8. For the pulled work I used two strands of DMC Variations ( again in the brown range). The filling stitches
were window filling, framed cross filling and diagonal drawn. Each makes little “windows” in their pattern and the lines the stitches made, like those of the background trusses.
