TAST 23-24

Cannot say whether it was because of the Nihongo test occupying all my brain cells and energy or the stitch itself but i had difficulties here.And called it quits. Then some days ago Deepa from This and That my Random Thoughts dropped by and suggested a link which recharged and inspired me to go back and try again next week. Not to mention Elisabeth's explorations which are alway inspiring. Anyway here is last week's effort.
i used rayon thread,very difficult to handle, #10 cotton perle an a bit of DMC metallic.

Now this week was something else. For the first time in weeks i was able to sit and relax and stitch. Not that i made anything earth shattering with the sample, but it was enjoyable and i just let the threads speak for themselves without coaxing them into anything. i even had a chuckle or two the times the knot went under. i especially like the contrast between the thin silk thread and the nubby space dyed silk noil from Stef Francis.
Really looking forward to relaxed stitching again.
