Stitching Early Spring
Outside-- It's in the teens and we still have several inches of crusty snow.
Inside-- I've been stitching on Early Spring (working title). I printed this design about a year ago for Carol Eaton's turn as queen of The Printed Fabric Bee. It just so happens to be her turn again...I have some interesting ideas that I plan to work on over the next few days.
It's bright and sunny today...a real difference from the last few days. I decided to take a photo of the strong sun on the piece.
I've mostly been stitching at night. I find it soothing and centering. There's been a lot of great things going on...blog tours, book signings and teaching classes...but...it's important for me to find a bit of quiet time.
I almost have the backing/border sewn down. Next I'll be stitching a bit on the border. I haven't decided if I want to do some subtle stitching around the flowers...more like an echo. What do you think?
