The outside of Strawberry Garden’s border reminds me of postage stamp perforations. Speaking of postage stamps, I love the Post Office’s new Love stamp:
Wouldn’t this make a great stamp? It’s already sort of perforated…;)
Crazy, uneven buttonhole flower. Normally the uneven oval would annoy me. Not this time. Breakthrough for me? Doubtful, considering how much time I wasted unsuccessfully getting this post to look the way I wanted.
I don’t know about you, but when I stitch, I spend quite a bit of time staring at the piece. When a project is on a scroll frame, I turn it from side to side, admiring the way the light plays with the colors. It seems impossible to accurately capture in a photo. I’m not sure if it’s the nature of photography or just my poor photography skills. One fun thing about rotating a piece on the scroll frame is getting to see the dimensionality of the stitches.
The laizy daizy stitches in this design especially make my heart flutter. I love this photo. See how the laizy daizies sit lightly on the fabric, happily floating? That’s the sort of thing you can’t easily admire once it’s framed.
I can’t get this post to publish the way it looks on the screen. I give up, and will rely upon your abilities to decipher my meaning. (I’m also hoping that this disclaimer works in my favor. I am not above a little voodoo now and then. ETA: OK, so that didn’t work. ETA 2: I forced it to approximate my intent. Stoopid computers. 😀 )
