Tonight I was not feeling well and decided this was a good time to do some ‘hand’ work, while just sitting around. I pulled out a piece of hand-dyed fabric that I had made at some point in bright pinks and muddy browns. I then added a few strokes of colour to simulate mountains. This piece is about 5”x7”.
Another 2 minutes and I added some outlines of mountains. I should have done this before I did the grass, but whatever.
All this took about 7 minutes. The next few hours I spent quietly adding french knots to the piece. I was going to leave the piece and crawl into a nice warm bed, but in in a burst of energy, a few minutes ago I stitched on the round leaves with a small zig-zag stitch. This took under 4 minutes.
I’m glad I finished it tonight. This is a great project when you’re not feeling well and just want to curl up on the couch and watch mindless TV.
Tomorrow I’ll look this over and see if this needs any more french knots or other adjustments. I see some stalks that look pretty bare, so I’m sure I’ll need to tweak it a bit..
