This past week I turned this freehand sketch
It’s not taken from a pattern, I couldn’t find the exact thing I wanted but I was inspired by this off the DMC stand at the CHSI Stitches show
I threw in some other wild looking flowers and chose my colours and made myself stick to them.
And did a little every night.
Last night was the big reveal, when I washed away the stabiliser.
I’m going to stretch it over a small canvas frame, but that’ll have to wait until the weekend.
Meanwhile my hands have been busy with a small monkey.
Remember these from round about a year ago? A welcome to the world gift for my OH’s new grandson, Henry.
They were all loved but the orange monkey became a firm favourite. Apparently he is looking a little worse for wear and occasionally needs a good wash. A stand-in has been requested! It is an absolute pleasure:)
Love, Lucie xx
