I'm writing a quick post. Instead of packing, I've been stitching on the cosmos, adding highlights, darks for definition and dimension here and there and a bit of sparkle.
Putting it on screen really helps me to see where I want to add.
I'm trying not so much for realism as fantasy. It's meant to be fun. I've been listening to CBC classical radio and stitching. When I should have been packing! Going to see our little one tomorrow. We're going to babysit for 2 nights. So excited!
This is a little dragonfly from another piece. I will have to make a few more.
Here are my last socks finished, except for darning in the ends.
And here are the ones I'm starting. They have a lacy edge and colors that say spring.
