Outsider looking in
Usually when I make embroideries that are not based on existing patterns, like this Doubtful Guest embroidery there is a moment about halfway when I'm not sure whether it will turn out all that well. The project looks rather hopeless and at that point I simply need to persevere. I think I'm just past that point with this embroidery and I"m pretty confident that it'll be a rather nice piece when it's done...
Tomorrow is the last day of the Feeling Stitchy's Covered in Stitches contest and I'm blown away by the submissions so far. You can check them out in the Covered in Stitches Flickr Group. Clearly many talented embroiderers are also into books and reading! We will have a hard time choosing a winner.
Currently I'm reading Erin Morgenstern's Night Circus and I'd love to make an Embroidered Cover design for that book. It's a great read so far: magical and delightfully odd and I'm a bit sorry that I have nearly finished reading it! But maybe you have some great book recommendations for me? Do let me know your favourite reads!
