I’ve been stitching away daily. I only take small breaks for embroidery but they add up!
OK folks, it’s back to work now. See you later!
Going well. Working on black can be a bit of a strain, so short bursts is a good idea anyway!
Why is working on black a strain? I haven’t noticed anything?
*Love* the stitching (colour) on the leaf….(inspired by Kathy in Unbroken Thread’s recent entry?). Done really well! (now I feel patronizing). A matter of artistic placement of those white stitches…
Glad you like it! Actually, the colors all came with the kit. I don’t have the extra brainpower to pick colors at the moment, so I’m mostly following the color scheme on this one.
I do love Kathy’s work, it’s so lovely.
I gather this is a kit. Can you give me the details of it please, eg, what, where, who etc. I do like black backgrounds and must say I have never noticed any problems working on black. And I am so very disciplined about taking regular breaks …. not!
It is looking good, I want to see it completed. Shame about the bird, for an ornithophobe like me, but the rest is lovely.
It’s an Anchor Freestyle embroidery kit named Water’s Edge. I got it on sale at http://www.keepsakeneedlearts.com/productdetail/40736/%20%20%20%20%20%20WATERS%20EDGE%20BIRD%20ANTICS%20.htm a few weeks ago. It’s also available at 123stitch.com and a ton of UK embroidery sites. It’s one of a pair – the other design is called A Bit Peckish, but that has TWO birds so I guess you don’t want that one 😀
