I was going to post a pic but decided it was just too gross. I bunged up my toe but good. It looks like a giant cherry sticking out there throbbing to the beat of my heart. I knew it was not doing well Saturday but went into town with Dorian anyway. By the time we got back home I realized just how bad. Big, Red, Sore and Angry Bad. Everyone wanted to go to the beach yesterday and I convinced Dorian to go without me. No sense of him missing out on the fun just because of my stupid toe! So I spent the day alone yesterday and finally had a chance to work on my dyes. I did the floss I needed, plus a few requests:
The top floss is the one I plan on using in my leaf project. I think it will work well for what I want.
I also did the material for the framework of Small World and three more velvet pieces:
The cotton is the big one at the end and it turned out perfect! I wanted it to depict the night sky because small world is about the moon dreaming. I thought it would carry the night to the rest of the picture. encompassing the dream. We will see once I get it down and next to the piece.
Mainly though, I have been sitting with my foot in the air or soaking in a footbath, so I have been stitching. One thing I love about stitching is you can do it even when you cant do much else!
Hope you all are well, I am back to stitching now!
