Lots of squares! Some more successful than others. Let’s review.
Thursday night I watched Project Runway and stitch up this little fishing scene:
I think my perspective is off – fishing line is a bit short, my circles are a bit too circular and big. But I love love love my dragonflies. The dragonflies might appear again.
Friday was a busy one, so I just added an old (likely vintage – not sure of its origins but it was made in “West Germany”) cameo. I’ve had this one for a long time – it was Mom’s, and then she gave it to me when she didn’t want it anymore. But I’ve never been able to wear it – it pins on the bottom half, so never laid on my clothes like I wanted. It’s much happier here.
Saturdays square, right next to the cameo, is something I’ve had in mind for a long time and I think is one of my favorites right now.
Another square I’ve had in mind for a long time was created on Sunday:
I’m mostly satisfied with it. The little koi were BHE’s idea. This square is based on a photograph I took at the Memphis Botanic Garden about two years ago.
And finally, this is what I worked up yesterday:
Can you tell what this is? I may have over-conceptualized….it’s bubbles. I have kids, so spring brings on bubble blowing in the back yard. I used the pink in hopes of capturing the iridescence of bubbles but I’m not sure I was successful. I think it is visually appealing though.
Here’s my 16 squares so far:
Are you stitching along with 39 Squares? I think I’m addicted to doing this. I think BHE is enjoying my obsession with inch-sized squares. He asked if I’m doing another for summer after this…and you know, after a brief break I think I just will.
