I eventually completed the March section of the Linen and Threads MSAL, after I worked on the border of the April section as a kind of a break.
For the March section’s flowers, I stuck with my idea of a ‘scribbly’ version, with one strand each of yellow and red held together. This resulted in flowers that are a medium dark, rather than the super-dark that brick-red by itself is. I like how the flowers work with the greens in the section.
I’ve filled in the color chart for the April section, and have started on the stitching. The border amounted to a third of the section – 😮 – so I’m hoping that the rest of it will also be an easy, pleasant drive, and that I would’ve caught up by the end of the month.
I usually listen to books or podcasts when I do creative stuff like stitching, and when I look at what I’ve created, I also remember parts of the books / podcasts. Does that happen to you as well?
