My Friday lunch girls switched to today since everything is closed on Remembrance Day. While out, I had to pick up a few groceries and a prescription. Between that and still not feeling back to par, I only did a bit of sewing. I originally had the idea to make needle lace for the seaweed and stitch it on, but then I thought why not just thread paint right on the scene. For the bit of seaweed in the foreground, I used two threads in the needle, so it would add 2 colors at once and fill in faster. I thought that since I had batting on the back that I wouldn't need the hoop. As you may notice it did pucker some, but I think it will be fine once I iron it and add some bead work. I'm not going to go overboard on the embellishing because this is going to be incorporated into a sewing machine cover.
I'm linking up to the Needle and Thread Network for WIP Wednesday.
