in progress #2

number four, in progress

number four, in progress

After a rather scary mishap involving morning coffee and an uncooperative cat, embroidery#3 is now drying in the sun (no damage, whew!) and my busy little fingers immediately went to work on #4. #3 is the most dense bit of stitching I'd done, and I started to notice the striations of split stitch, how the colors lay close and layered together, and I knew I wanted to do something more with that notion. And lo, #4 was born. Somewhere between sunset and woodgrain, ribbons of warm color, meditative and tactile.

Of all things for me to circle back towards, embroidery?
I'm just as dumbfounded as anyone.
