I've made myself do some sewing. Got fed up of doing the yellow stitch i was doing before, so have started the next layer over the top in pale green. Only trouble is there is no avoiding the yellow stitch. No matter how long i put off finishing it, i will have to finish it to complete the piece, also so i can do the next layer over the top. I know it will look good. Well, in my opinion. I like the effect the stitch creates, and with layering in different colours it has depth. Will take a pic lata when i find my camera. God knows where i put it.

I got a fair few but the 3 above caught my eye. I think they would work great as appliqued pieces on my embroideries. Even as tiny bits as they will really stand out.
I dunno what i'm doing with this piece yet. I dunno whether to keep it or sell it. Need to decide really. Can't keep it sitting on top of my wardrobe forever. The piece im working on at the moment i am planning on selling, when i've finally finished it. Just like with the beading on the piece above, i have chosen to do something that seemed a good idea at the time, but is taking forevvvvvveeerrrrrrrr. It's a surface stitch of cross-hatching and sealing each criss-cross of the lines. I can't remember what it's called, but i haven't made it up. It looks good when completed. I use to use it in small patches on my embroidered cuffs and necklaces. Hopefully it will look fine on this piece. I'm using it to fill the ladie's top. I had considered fabric but opted for stitching.
Okay, so i've just noticed you can't see the stitch at all, but believe me that yellow smudge of a mess is it. lol. So i intend to try and finish it 2moro, then talk my Dad in to making it a canvas.
Right i'm gonna av a cup of tea and look at clothes i can't afford.
P.S, ou ou ou... got my secret garden party ticket. Soooooooooooooooooooo bloody excited. WOOP woop.
