|| All Stitched Up || Embroidery Hoop Update


I have been adding bits and pieces to my embroidery piece since I first posted about my embroidery class.   At first, I wasn't sure about adding beads as the first time I tried it I did not like the look of it, but I decided to go ahead and give it a second go anyway.  The difference is that this time, instead of using rows of beads, I opted for little clumps of them spaced at random.

I have a lot of bright colors on my piece.  Primarily because I just decided to use what I had on hand in my various crafty stashes, but now I think it is time to add more greens in the piece to tone it down a little bit.  Speaking of greens I think I hit upon a combination that I really, really love.  They remind me of when I would fly from Virginia to Montana.  As soon as the plane flew over the neatly patterned, squarish pacts of land that looked like an earth-colored quilt, I eagerly gazed out of my window.  It was my hope to remember the land in small graphic images, shapes spilling over into shapes, color melting into color.  

The colors that I selected remind me of all of the different shades of grass--new budding sprouts, firm, deep-green blades, and golden hay.
