Things I Love Thursdays

Right now, I am loving purple.


I did it!  That's the jacaranda trees commission.  I just have to add a few more fallen petals onto the road side and I think I am done.  I really like the way the land is textured, and how the shadows of the trees worked out.

I hand stitched all the thicker threads in that piece.  They are like seed stitches in a pinky/purple variegated cotton.  It was days and days... and I didn't mind a bit.

And now for my next trick...


days and days of stitching...

I love silk ribbon so much.  It is such a joy to work with.  * sigh *  But I'm not done yet...

p.s.  Did you know that in the states, it's National Embroidery Month?  kewl.  : )

Have a great day!

I love this piece, Monika! The purple is glorious and reminds me of lilacs at home in Ontario. And spring seems so far away this year …. Way to go!

Amazing. Truly. So realistic, and this comes from someone who drives down those sorts of roads and sees those beautiful trees in bloom each Summer.
