Changing a design is hard. You have to think about it for a while. I've been thinking of how to change the Merry Cox tray. So yesterday I went looking through some books for design ideas. I saw a bird I liked and I saw some flowers but they didn't really go with the leaves very well. So then I looked around a bit more and came across a blackwork design I found on the internet. I decided I wanted to see how the pansy flower looked in the ovals on the tray. So I tried stitching one with purple thread.
I liked it! So now I'm putting pansies in all four. My name will have to come out. Picking out stitching over one is a pain. Then I have to decide what to do in the center of the tray. I can do some more of the blackwork design. I'll have to think about it.
I got a bit more done on the big Mermaid. This is fun just taking a small motif and filling it in each day. I finished off the butterfly.
I wanted to see how her face looks all filled in. Then I wanted to see the moon. So those are the parts I worked on yesterday.
I think I want to work on the strawberries today.
BFF#2 is flying off to Betsy Morgan classes today. I wish I was going too. But what I really should be doing is catching up on all the classes I've already taken.
Next week is September!?!?
