This weeks update on my hand stitching: Little Elephant is making progress - I think I'm somewhere between a third and a quarter of the way through, and the denim bits are piling up. This week's piece has less stitching on than some of the others, and I don't like this thread as much, but I've unearthed a box full of old embroidery threads so will be going brighter again next time. I like the look of the little denim patches though, and will spend this week working on the other half of this.
As I've mentioned before, these bits are essentially samples for a project I am working on with my sister, but I realise I can't just leave them at that, so have started playing around with them, seeing what they look like together. I've done this virtually (using collage software)
and the old fashioned way (crawling around on the floor).
Now that I've started I will keep playing around with this, but if I'm going to think about piecing them together I will definitely need either to do a load more or to find a way to bring something else into the mix. Food for thought, but I'm in no hurry.
