Carrying on with the Rusty Gate.
Choices had to be made.
How to continue stitching the new strip?
Surely beneath an old gate there would be tangled weeds.
I tried stitches in a mess of shapes and colours.
Didn't work for me...way too bold and shockingly different
from the calm rows of stitching above the gate.
Tried softening the colours
but holding on to the idea of messy weed shapes.
Still not what I want to say.
Went back to darker colours
and returned to rows of stitches
but messy rows!
Now I'm happy!
More in keeping with the rest of this piece but slightly different.
My own strange way of keeping it simple or perhaps minimalism!
