My Current WIPs (in 3 Volumes) #1 Chaffinches and Blossom

Good morning! Well, a semi good morning as my throat has swollen up again and I fear a batch of tonsillitis..... Oh well, I wasn't going to do much today anyway as I got loads of work done yesterday, so apart from cancelling the shoe buying trip (which I hate anyway - I have awkward sized feet) I'm just going to slob out and stitch. So, maybe tomorrow I'll be OK.=)

This is the picture I've started for the bedroom. I'll be doing the 'blue tits and seedheads' design from the same series too for one either side of the bed. I love the colours in this one and the changes are very subtle with a lot of blending of colours together, (one strand each of two shades instead of the usual two of the same). Problem with both this photo and the next is that evenweave fabrics don't reproduce well on certain scales of photo, so both of these pix look 'liney' and the hardanger one looks loose!!!!!

Your projects are beautiful, Elizabeth! And so many techniques I've never tried. You're very talented. :) I hope you feel better soon.

Barbara said...

Funny how some fabrics do that, isn't it? Your projects are beautiful - I always admire your skill with so many different techniques.

Well, I understand about the dog: it looks complicated, and all those beige shades must be boring. Though it looks great!
The hardanger: yes, that frog sometimes disgusts me so much that I just want to let it all down... It looks lovely, though!
The birds: yummy!!!

Your WIP's are beautiful!!! You are in command of so many different techniques and do them all so well that I'm truly a little jealous.
Hope your wiring dilemmas will soon be resolved and that you're feeling better already.
