I finished my rendition of the StitchMAP turtle. I wanted to create a soft background that simulated water, without taking any focus from the turtle. I think the turtle's batik fabric married well with the blue and green thread. It was perfect for adding a bit of colour and dimension to the turtle and his shell. Does it look as though he's breaching the waves to gulp a deep breath?
Black crystals (with blue and green tones) were added for his eyes.
The weather has switched to colder temperatures with more frosty nights, and rain for most of the last week. The trees are losing their colourful cloaks.
As October comes to an end, so too do the warm days of autumn. Even the oak leaves are mottled and coloured.
More french knots down the center, and piece #12 will be finished!
That's it for this week.
I hope you've had a fun, creative week.
Hugs from Suz.
