I’ve been busy…….but not necessarily on my embroidery! I prepped all these hoops ready for some winter or perhaps bridal embroidered beads, as well as one for another coffin. This time white with pale blue trim.
When I start a new project, I collect a bunch of threads and beads and trims that I think may work and put them all into a plastic bin. Then when I start to stitch it is all in one place and I just pick and choose what I want. I rarely use all or even most of what I collect but having it all together helps inspire me.
I have several pale pastels in the box as well and some metallic threads like the ones above. When I am working on more than one stitchery at a time, I work back and forth, from one hoop to another, so that they all grow at the same time. What I do on one gives me ideas for another. My work tends to grow organically, moving from one stitch or concept to another. Am I the only one who works on several projects at once?
I’m off to either study some calculus or to stitch away!
