I'm having a tough time getting a good photo of this one. It looks like the contrast is too high, but when I reduce it, the yellows fade drastically in the Trefoil. The tree tops and sky should appear a tad more muted. The colors are pretty true to the real thing though. It's small at 4x6 inches. It will be double matted and framed to 8x10. In this one, I did Sorbello stitches with floss and hand dyed weaver's string, french knots with silk, and seed stitches as well. I chose not to stitch into the sky, as it was a clear day. I'll finish the edges and sign it in thread.
So now we talk about weather? It's HOT. Still hot. Like - gross... and terribly muggy. Today, the forecast added 'smokey'. There's a lot of forest fires burning! Oh my - it must have been the dry conditions and then all the lightening a couple nights ago. You couldn't even see the color blue when you looked up today.
Look what happened to me on my way home from the Silverspring Prairie last week!
I kid you not. A black cat crossed my path. Out of town!? Unbelievable. Happy Friday the 13th! Lucky or unlucky?
