As part of Carla's Bee, Myself and I selfish sewing (which she has had absolutely no time for, poor thing) I've been working on a needlepoint canvas. In a recent post I hinted that I've set aside that canvas for a new project. For the time being it remains at this stage:
I guess I needed to work on something more colorful than all that light blue. So I pulled out a pre-printed panel I'd purchased some while ago from Sublime Stitching. Jenny put her floss bundles on sale recently too. Of course I succumbed and bought a selection. It only seemed appropriate then that I should stitch her panel with her floss!
More bluebirds, although not like any bluebird with which I'm familiar. ;- )
I'm using this piece to strengthen my embroidery skills and also to practice being okay with not doing things perfectly. I doubt you'll be able to see it, but my back stitches are never a consistent length. I'm seriously hoping that the blue markings will wash out as promised.
It's been a very long time since I've done this sort of thing. It's turning out to be quite a pleasant change from building quilts and quilt backs!
