Therapy in thread…
There have been problems in the administrative side of my writing life over the last week and I haven’t felt like writing.
So what does one do when one can’t write?
Or finish the stumpwork Swallowtail Butterfly taught by Jane Nicholas this time last year?
I opted for the stitching.
Traced the wings onto calico.
Couched the wire.
Freaked out when I saw the sharp edges of the bottom part of the wings.
THIS is what the butterfly will look like.
This is the first effort at wings in class, using an entirely different thread with no lustre.
And then this morning found all admin glitches were sorted… but stitched anyway because I go to a lovely stitch group every Friday morning.
