Before we left I had finished my 65 project of stitching every day and just at the end of that project had stumbled upon (almost literally--it was on the floor of my studio under a couple of other books) Drawn to Stitch by Gwen Hedley, a book I had bought a while ago and had never gotten around to looking at.
along with a couple of pieces of fabric and lots of pearl cotton of varying thicknesses and colors and some other heavy threads.
And during some of those long, rainy, windy evenings I sat and stitched. In the spirit of Drawn to Stitch, I let the land/seascape in front of me be my inspiration,
although I was also just trying out some different stitches and seeing where each kind of stitch would take me so this was never meant to be an accurate facsimile of that ever changing scene.
This is very small, but, of course, I was doing many other things that week besides stitching.
And, if you are still with me, thanks for the company!
