Hearts stitch journal, 27 April 2018

     

A cool, grey morning today, and very still. Wildflowers are springing up in every direction, and the fields are now full of dandelion clocks, ready to take flight at the first breath of wind. Today’s threads are grey coton à broder no 16, brown six-strand cotton used with all six strands, red/green variegated Indian rayon, used single strand, and cream six-strand Cartier Bresson Brilliante d’Alger, used single strand. The stitches are crossed heavy chain for the heart, satin stitch for the boss, back stitch for the stalk and fly stitch for the seeds.
