Yes, I did finally get nice photos of the Cladonia shawl! No, they’ve not yet been edited or uploaded. Until then, here’s E.
This one was a bit of pain, if I’m honest about it. I wanted a clean line for the main part of the E, so stuck with split stitch (my best for that kind of line) but then wasn’t really happy with the split stitch fill I did there. I’m just not totally sure it works. And after stitching in a darker pink, I realized the color of those swirls had to be much lighter or else they distracted from the E itself. I hope this barely-pink thread is right, I think it’ll be less noticeable once I wash out the fabric marker lines. On the other hand, the lazy daisies went better than expected and, I’m sorry to be smitten with my own work but really, how flippin’ cute are those tiny flowers?! They’re about a half centimeter tall or so; those little petals are so darling, I could just pat them all day long.
You can see a peek of the D there as well, it’ll be almost all in back stitch, which wasn’t quite as easy to get going as you might think. But I’ll tell you about that when it’s finished. And today I get to pick out the next group of letters from the Sajou alphabets I have saved, each one lovelier than the one before.
