Monday, March 6
It's still hot here in Perth, Western Australia, but I just can't stand not having anything to stitch while watching TV in the evening.
It seems such a waste of time to just sit and do nothing.
I had this lovely mermaid print and I was keen to make it up in a heart for the Chain of Hearts swap.
So with all my threads and underwater charms by my side, I positioned myself under the air conditioner and happily stitched to my hearts content.
Feather stitch is a great one for the seaweed, so I did lots of feather stitch in a shiny green rayon DMC thread and coral silk thread for some coral.
I embroidered some little fish in gold thread, swimming among the seaweed.
This heart will be a hard one to part with..
