The beginnings of my blessings…
Me and my hubby, John, are the best of buddies…and we love to snorkel. Living here in Hawaii , we are blessed with (just about) 365 days a year in which we CAN and are ABLE to snorkel. Go warm weather and sunshine!
Can you see the resemblance?
The bottom edging is a Stem Stitch-Portuguese Knot, the sides are Feather Stitch, the top is a Running Stitch with an interspersed Double Cross Stitch. I think of it as corals below, greens and seaweeds for the sides and sunning skies above. All the edges are stitched with a multi-color dyed Caron Watercolor thread.
What’s snorkeling without some water and waves. Here is some embroidery with a ‘twist’ for the wave action! Stitched with Blanket Stitch-Detached Twisted Bar and some good ‘ole DMC thread.
Did I mention that these are 1 inch squares?
Very tiny faces. Very tiny squares.
This has been a great start! I’ve already had some fun!
Your life needs fun. Go ahead, have some fun! –
