at the moment I am slowly slowly stitching a girl with flowers on her mind. Reading 'mrs Dalloway', on her way to buy flowers, popped the idea into my mind. I love the idea of her being stitched in greys with all the flowers around her. But I'm also torn about whether to give her an applique dress so I may have to include both options.
I'm also torn about the flowers. I'm filling them in at the moment but I really like them outlined with just the french knot centres so I may do both versions of that too. I think this pattern may take a little while to finish, I know I need to stitch another one and photograph the processes for all the different flowers. I am very much making it up as I go along and thoroughly enjoying it. That long short stitch has snuck in again for her hat. I just love the knitted texture that it gives.
I do have another pattern on the go but no pictures yet. It will have to stay secret for a few more days.
I have also finally sorted out some wonky sheds printed onto fabric. There are only a couple in my etsy shop at the moment but I will be ordering more next week if you miss out.
Now I think a little more sketching and stitching while I listen to the wonderful Melvyn Bragg telling me how great the North of England is but of course I already knew how great it is.
