Blue Bunny Embroidery

I like that the palette reminds me of blue willow china. I am filling in the background with a cream brick stitch. It’s very labor intensive, but I think it will make the piece really stand out and be different.

Firedrake, Shooting Star, Meteor

The rather long, gangly man is reaching out of his impossibly small house towards the celestial phenomenon, which doesn’t seem to notice him, as is proper for so heavenly a being. They don’t consort with low, terrestrial things, after all. I like the idea that the house is small and barely sufficient, that the man is long and stretching out, and striving. That’s what learning is about, and that’s how learning feels. I filled the foreground with piles of hydrangea. Their blue and purple color makes me think of night.

Blue Bunny and Red Cardigan

Some needlework for today. A rabbit embroidery in blue, and the left front of a cardigan in progress. This is in cotton, my first cardigan in cotton. It feels wonderfully soft.

Embroidered Choker

I’m trying something new. I’ve taken this little band of cotton and I’m going to embroider it and turn it into a choker/ necklace sort of thing. I might crochet lace to sew around the outside. I’m not sure about the closure. Hook and eye? Velcro? We’ll see.
