me break stitching

17 Jan

Erm, not that i broke anything! I’m just giving myself a stitching break from the big work, by going back to a project started last summer.

Samara has been languishing for a good while: ennui, boredom, what-evering (not to be confused with what-if-ing….), lack of direction. I dumped some threads on her to see what would work.


Above, while i love the colours and the combo, too bright for this one. They are however being used on these little bits, destined for something else:


These are what i’ll use.

Yesterday’s sampling with the indigo for/in/with hexes was heartening, but not ready to reveal that yet πŸ™‚

    Like you I have more than one piece on the go ….very difficult stitching here at the moment in a heatwave esp as my large piece is backed with light weith flannel
    Like the greyed shades in your lower photo

      At the present, mine keeps me warm πŸ™‚ But i know what you mean–sometimes under the apple tree in the summer, that “blankie” feeling is immense and i have to throw it off. All of my work is backed by flannel.
