Y’all, I am back! I was totally swamped by work for a few weeks, but I am resuming posting now. To motivate myself, I started on this lovely Elsa Williams kit, Bluebird Floral. Pretty, isn’t it? I’m just doing this one fairly simply – mostly long and short stitch – so that I can work on it even when I’m tired.
You know me though, I can’t resist meddling. Most of the design is supposed to be worked in wool. I don’t like the wool they provided, so I’ll be working all the flowers in floss. I might leave the birds in wool though. I like that effect in the Bird Brocade kit I’ve been working.
I like it already. Except for the brown french knots on the first flower. I know what they’re supposed to represent, but I think it looks like the flower has chicken pox. I’m probably going to take them out. What do y’all think?
