Balancing things out a bit

I haven't made much progress on the denim in the last few days, but like the rhythm that posting on Slow Sunday Stitching provides, so here's my little bit.  

Looking at the last photo I took I realised that all the extra denim patches were congregating in the middle of the piece, but that I had pretty much stopped adding them: recently it's all been little cotton scraps and circles, so to balance it out a bit I have added two patches: one a pocket and the other just a scrap of dark denim. I have also deliberately looked for contrast in the shades of denim, just because it pleases my eye.



This pocket patch in particular really pleases me.


More embroidery next, I think.

What you added really does help grow the theme and balance out the composition. Enjoy your slow stitching / embroidery! :)

Absolutely lovely! I just started doing some boro. It is way more interesting that never thought it would be.

I love that Sunday rhythm too :) I really like the way the three rectangular pink pieces are placed next to the dark denim strips and the balance they create. Your embroidery is as beautiful as ever. Hope you got to do some more stitching today. x

Love your stitching on the pocket and your approach to this project.

Ooh yes, I like the stitching on that pocket a lot!

They look less like a border with these additions. I haven't said before, but the larger pink pieces add contrast while connecting to the small patches.
