- Three in a row

After a day full of shopping and errands yesterday, I once again had some catching up to do ...

Patches 80-82

Sunday revisited ...


a late-night myopic view of Monday's waxing gibbous moon (courtesy of Deb Lacativa) ...


and the green grass growin' all around and around ....

Patch #82
with fingers crossed that Wednesday morning's lunar eclipse won't be clouded over ...

Ha ... my eccentric take on Turkey stitch

Hi Liz...what did you use to create the flower patch?

Liz Ackert said...

Susan - I used Derwent Inktense pencils, touched them with a just barely wet paintbrush (lest the color wick into the linen too much), ironed dry, then outlined the petals with an XS Pitt pen. I have to credit Sharon Tomlinson with the show-how here: http://sharonscloth.blogspot.com/2015/12/inktense-play.html

these three just Flow. the myopic view could not be more perfect...
will you stitch the flower or leave it as is?

Liz Ackert said...

Thanks Grace ... I think I'm going to start posting every two or three patches in the future. Don't think I'll stitch the flower (I like the ink outline), but your question made me think I might stitch the leaves and stems.

P.S. Myopia, as with deafness, has its advantages.

Easter Blessings to you and your family!

I love your grass! Very clever. Although, that song has always made me a little nuts, sang it too many times in my pre-K teaching days.

Wishing you and yours a joyful Easter

Oops ... sorry to plant a song in your head (pun intended, and it's a baaaad one, as most are).
