I have classes rushing up to meet me but I have taken some stolen time to do a bit more stitching on my 'Peace' embroidery for this month.
When I did the drawing for this piece I envisaged it as layers of colour, like you see in some illustrations. But threads are not paint and the process of stitching gives a different effect. It is the very light colours, especially the pink, that I have found difficult. It shows every imperfection of my stitching. As it is only the second layer I am hoping the other colours will distract from this. I put the most prominent colour, dark blue, on first thinking that this needed to be toned down. The light blue is only maginally better than the pink but the mid blues look as though they will be fine. I'm wondering if I should have made the pink the first layer?
