The rain seems to stretch on and on here but I do quite enjoy the misty grey sky and light it creates outside. The look of the spring blossoms and branches against the grey clouds inspired these small embroidered pieces- one on blue linen and the other worked on some new dark grey I found in my local fabric store.
I'm enjoying the idea of monochromatic stitching and wondering what colour to try next- perhaps lots of fine black stitching on white linen? Or red embroidery on cream fabric?
In other news, I was excited to find this beautiful food blog the other day- Indian Simmer. Perhaps my dreams of mastering some Indian recipes might come true, after all?
