Embroidering hearts III
With the days getting shorter, colder, darker and sniffles and snuffles sweeping through my little family, I've found I've had less time to work on the hearts.
I've felt a little lost on this heart, so I've been throwing more and more colours and stitches at it, in the hope that somewhere I'd find a happy direction. Only now is it starting to look ok. As you can see it is unfinished, more blanket stitch, maybe a few more fly stitch leaves, the rest of the pekinese stitch and a bit more running stitch on the left side, then it will be complete. This is the halfway heart, once it is finished only four more to go.
We've been eating wholefood mama's lentil soup and drinking fresh thyme leaf tea (with a bit of lemon and honey), hoping to fight all the nasties away.
(Just read over that and laughed, I shouldn't make it sound quite so dire, the SUN IS SHINING and we spent the morning running around the park!)
ps the moon looks beautiful tonight.
