One Track Mind

For me, obsession is cyclical. I’ll work feverishly on something for weeks, with no interest in anything else. For the past week or so, it’s been embroidery.

And since I’ve been sick in bed for days, I’ve had plenty of time to indulge myself. I’ve been enjoying adding more color to the embroidered hearts.

Varying Stitches

I’ve also been practicing a variety of stitches. I’m feeling better about my embroidery, though I still need a lot of practice to be completely satisfied. Or maybe the colors are so bright it’s hard to notice how uneven my stitches are.

As I was rummaging through my embroidery floss I found an ACEO I embroidered a few years ago, along with a stack of blank silk and linen ACEO’s created for me by a friend. I listed the former in the shop, and started experimenting with some ombré stitching on the latter. I’ll have pictures of the new piece next time.

What about you? What have you been creating?
