Yesterday burning logs kept us warm
and a sun began emerging on this piece.
If you look carefully you'll see
She's surrounded by a few black holes
where stitches were tried and rejected
or perhaps burnt to a cinder!
Perhaps because it was so cold
I decided on a bold warm sun.
Trouble is I decided not to remove
the background fabric under the sun
and the combination of these two cottons
is tougher than I thought to stitch through.
I can feel my median nerve feels very tender
so I'll move on to gentler stitching for a day or so.
I've had carpal tunnel before and it's no fun for a stitcher!
Having worked all day on a sun
I decided to stitch a moon for my daily scratching
but what I visualized didn't occur at all, at all
and it looks more like a Catherine Wheel!
And so the day was spent with my basket of threads
in front of the fire.
