I thought I'd show a photo of my completed June HEX LABS from StitchMAP. I chose the blackwork maple leaf, and found it to be a little challenging, especially since:
a) this is my first blackwork piece
b) this piece requires compensation stitches
c) the maple leaf is designed to be reversible ahem.....mine is not reversible.......lol
Still, it was a fun challenge with a new-to-me technique.
The reverse might have worked out better if I wasn't rushing a bit.
The wedding is late next month, so I have to scramble to finish my stitching on the Wedding Piece.
Here's my progress:
It's difficult to get clear close-ups that show the subtle colourations of the variegated threads.
In the garden, more flowers are blooming:
I'm still digging up plants, transplanting, and weeding. So far, the bindweed is winning....... sigh, but the battle continues!
I hope you've had a good and creative week.
Thanks for visiting.
