lion stitches

Back again to stitching !
( There is still a lot of knitting on the needles,
 but that has to wait for in between moments )
The lion has its new backing and I am stitching mostly
with my self dyed bambu thread.
It's by far not as smooth as silk or even cotton embroidery thread
but it is strong enough and the colour is exactly what I need.

I love the way the colour slowly moves from yellow to green and back again
I'm really pleased with it !
A gentle yellow-green breeze is swirling through the air 

 The garden is at its end :
almost all those beautiful red and golden leaves have fallen down.
What stays are the memories of flowers :
Echinacea ...

Eupatorium ...

although this litlle Campanula (that flowers for the third time now)
is probably thinking that
the cold days will not yet arrive.

3 opmerkingen:

  1. amazing how much movement one can create with stitches. just love your 'swirling breeze'.

  2. I love doing swirling stitches too! Today the sun is out and it's fooling us into thinking winter is not right around the corner. I love days like this. A bright spot to help when it's pouring down rain this coming weekend,
