When I was laying together all the green scraps
for another stitching piece
there suddenly was a blue moon on one of them ...
Well, clearly that was it :
it should be.
The piece from scratch
(or should I say : from scraps ?)
halfway through ...
working from all sides
And then the finished piece
front and back
Some more details of the stitching.
Just very simple stitches :
running stitch (kantha or sometimes flat stitch)
and buttonhole stitch
in silk and cotton or rayon embroidery floss.
Stitching I did outside in the garden,
but when it was too HOT ... I fled inside !
B.t.w. garden ...
is what I'm doing to my New Dawn rose right now :
a severe case of
black spot !
(I think I'll have to spray, next year ...)
But other things are doing great !!!
