I made up this project bag using a piece of dark grey linen that I started embroidering while when I was in Australia last month, based on some plants we collected on a walk. I was trying to demonstrate how embroidering with white on a darker coloured linen can be quite freeing, because the usual decisions about colour don't apply.
And besides, I like the 'blackboard' look of white on charcoal.
So this piece is a sort of sampler of different ferns, seedpods and flowers I drew in my sketchbook.
I've put a few new things in my etsy shop. I've been meaning to do this for a while now- a little stack of finished items slowly grew until today I could stock it up again. I've missed making things for my shop, being in contact with customers, wrapping items in brown paper and posting them, but perhaps I needed to have a break from it for a while.
I hope you have a lovely weekend ahead.
