A little flower sprouts a little bit of energy and motivation to get back into embroidery. Not done much in the way of intricate stitching for quite some time. As you will have noted that my blogging fluctuates with the posting, matching my mind set and projects. I've been working on getting myself out of the rut and looking after myself, first and forth most, and doing a little bit of what I love to do.
To stop myself procrastinating about what I was going to stitch yesterday, I pulled out an old design, based on a Liberty fabric. Grabbed out the fabric and the colour threads I wanted to use, bright colours helping a lot to get this done, and just go on with it.
It's tiny about an 1 1/2 in height. With padded satin leaves, back stitch stem, and a flower head incorporating trailing border, padded beadwork centre and little French Knots. I did it slowly over a course of an afternoon, maybe a few hours in total if that. I had no initial idea of what to do with it, frame it, turning into a part of a patchwork panel, or as my mind thinks about it, a wee little fabric covered box. I've not done one in an age. The mathematics to make one will certainly tick over a few grey cells.
