Yep you have traveled back in time to yesterday. I was so busy whining about being hot and sick of Summer on Wednesday and Thursday that I did not get to starting my first experimental stitching project until the night time. I have been wanting to explore texture with stitching for a while now, something free flowing and organic. Where I don't worry so much about the stitches themselves as how I want them to feel or look like they should feel.
Every week I will pick something I observe and try to recreate it in stitches...this time it was the smoothness of these giant night blooming flowers that I have so missed this Summer. The plants are only just starting to peek up above the ground after being stunted by the heavy fire smoke a few months ago.
Sorry about the crap picture I had no idea white on dark fabric would be so hard to photograph :(.
