We arrived home early this afternoon
and while on the drive, I had made a list of things
that I wanted to accomplish before dark.
One was the embroidery on this navy blue ring.
And I did it!
I love checking off things on a list,
so when I'm procrastinating
I make lists.
Works almost every time.
One of the problems I had encountered with the embroidery
was my inability to get good light and see the small stitches well.
Since each stitch is linked into the loop of the previous stitch
and my thread is dark, it was a challenge to me.
I got out my faithful magnifier, and the work became a joy.
The pic above is how the work appears through the magnifier.
Far easier to deal with - don't you think?
I thought I had some root beer colored beads in my stash
- and I did -
so I added just a few to the French Knots.
I'm really liking how this is turning out.
We began listening to Barbara Kingsolver's "The Lacuna"
on our drive down to the beach, and we have
continued on our ride back.
It's a great 'read' - have you read it yet?
I love Kingsolver's writing,
and she has blended history with fiction beautifully in this
thanks for stopping by!
I hope you'll leave a comment!
