Finally put the computer and sewing machine aside
and was able to get back to hand stitching.
Filling in small bits and pieces
with whatever came to mind.
You can see that I first couched with a grey thread
but wasn't happy with that
way too calm and predictable.
I like the little sharp specks of black
Perhaps like a kitten testing it's claws.
Just a few stitches in the background.
Playtime with scraps
Stitching as the mood grabs me
Hopefully will loosen up as the Crumbs pile up!
