It's been a week of rain here which has meant that my plans for taking the children to the park and me sketching didn't happen.
I have had that nagging feeling that I should have been doing jobs around the house, but I didn't seem to get anything done.
My stitching mess is over flowing and the house is a tip, well the children have been stuck in a lot due to the poor weather!
Here is a sketch I did last week when the sun came out for a few minutes!
I decided I wanted to work on a few larger stitched pieces.
The first, my stitching echoing as much as possible the sketches I made of the over grown path.
The other, working from a painting in my sketch book of my holiday last year in France.
I have used many different types of thread, building layers over layers of machine embroidery.
Once I have completed the machine stitching I will then start adding hand stitches.
I think I have still quite a lot of hand stitching to do on this one.
Bye for now.x
