A cold, sunny day this morning with an amazing dawn of turquoise with pink-coloured contrails. Today I thought I’d commemorate our meadow grasses, which will soon be cut for hay. I’m not a big expert on different grasses, though I can see that one is a bent and a couple of the others are annuals, maybe poa. Today’s threads are turquoise-variegated and pink-variegated cotton perlé no 5, and brown-variegated and green six-strand embroidery threads sewn in one or two strands. The stitches are magic chain for the heart, stem stitch for the stems, outline stitch for the blades of grass, and detached chain and straight stitch for the seed heads.
