Some of My Favourite Colours

Look at all these yummy yarn colours!  They photograph so well on the black tablecloth.


I've been craving to do an entire piece with seed stitches, much like 'Where Sunlight Falls'.  This time I will just play around and experiment... see where it takes me.  I'm enjoying the layers and it's beginning (of course) to resemble a landscape.


I'm loving this process.  It's like dipping a brush into several paints and watching the colours all swirl as they are laid down on the canvas.  : )  It reminds me a bit of rug hooking: popping up colours and seeing what you get as you go along.

That's my work in progress.  I stitched all night and then again since 6 am.  I can hear my littlest one up, waiting for breakfast.  I should run!  See you soon,

What a lovely, subtle selection of colors. It sounds like very zen process, Monica. Enjoy. It's going to be beautiful.
