Tent stitch is usually so incredibly tedious, isn’t it! But this was such a fun thing to stitch during my Christmas summer holiday. I took a mound of blue, green, teal, and purple floss, and a couple of pinks and one orange for counterpoint, and just dipped into them to select the colour for the next doodled motif. Then I joined the motifs together and kept on stitching until I decided yesterday that it is fininshed.
This was inspired by Bonnie Kennedy-Grant’s book “From Breadballs to Brazil and Beyond“. Bonnie is a lovely lady who is currently president of my local embroider’s guild, and her book is such a delight.
I think this piece will become part of a bag to carry and embroidery project in.
