June, 9

Today my mind seemed to be on everything else except my work. I started a new piece and this is how far I got with it. This is one small corner of the whole cloth. A few pencil drawings too, they are a little hard to see. I have been studying color relationships and trying to apply them to my own work.

I have this book of traditional embroidery stitches and I love to draw the stitches and make scenes out of them. I tend to draw a lot of nature scenes & bits of dreams grafted with pieces of ephemera; like a pattern I saw or a bit of lace or tatting from my collection.
