Another Weekly Crumb From the Cutting Room Floor


One more week
Lying on the backs of previous weeks.


Stitching Kantha brings so much pleasure.
Fingers wrapped around needle
Thread held by the eye of the needle.
Thimble on middle finger.
Feeling the layers coming together in gentle ripples.


Bright, bright colours of Summer
it has finally arrived.


Little row of shimmering pink cross forms.


 The side we hide
Supposedly the side full of secrets!

  1. Loving this, Penny--front and back. I'm working on a "book" so that I can use the wrong side as well. Hate to waste all those stitches. Have a good summer.
    best, nadia

  2. Lovely, indeed. And especially to see bright colours instead of the grey skies I see outside the window!

  4. Oh, I love this. The colors represent summer to me - so this is a perfect June stitchery.

  6. I agree with all, and more. B-sides are a part of the process to be shared. Even more, I am happy your summer has arrived! I have been struck by inspiration to work on another piece, but "your" landscape calls to me from the wall. I do have progress pix I can post on my blog...as soon as I figure out where they are on this new laptop...

  9. I think I might be weird but I always am fascinated by the back of stitcheries. Quite often I find them just as interesting as the front. Love the bright summery colours of this one.
