Slow Cloth & Studio Time


I've had a bit of time today
to begin the Stumpwork on my silk piece.
It is tedious, and I can only do a bit at a time
as the piece is so large, I must stand while I work
with the silk laying out across my sewing table.

But it's well worth it, I think.
Here's a detail shot:


It's quite nice to have some embroidery in my hands
after all these years!
Slow cloth is good!


I had just a few minutes today to run out to the studio
and try out the stamps I found last week at Kudzu.
Funny thing: the first paints that hit my fingers were
rust and navy!  There seems to be a theme here!
I'm not sure what the above stamp actually is.
What do you think?
Do I spy bird or duck footprints?
What's your guess?

Here's the other stamp


makes a lovely border, doesn't it!

thanks for stopping by!

peace

I love your stitching! I can't wait to see the completed piece! The stamps are so very interesting. I have to say I am enjoying your color theme! Hope you are enjoying this weekend.
