I've been waiting to post until I had finished the first fifth of the library. I've not yet finished it. Why? I got a little bit sidetracked - nothing new there! I was feeling the need to stitch a few GFG flowers as I've not done any in a while - so I gave in to the urge and stitched 6 more flowers. It was immensely enjoyable and satisfying. I laid out all of my flowers to date so I could see my garden.
All made using Inklingo I love this method. So, you would think that having got that out of my system I would then have pressed on to finish the cross stitch wouldn't you? Hmm, no that didn't happen! Recently there have been several new Inklingo releases and I wasn't able to resist a couple of them...especially the Rainbow Flower design. I've been itching to make one since I downloaded and I could stand it no longer! Not sure where I'm going with this and how big it will turn out to be eventually but here's what I played with this afternoon...
I need to think about this a little while now and decide on size etc. I only have two fat quarters of that rather fabulous pink tone on tone so yes, some thought and planning required as those petals are quite big.
Here's the poor Library - it has progressed since I last showed it, I was trying to get those bricks finished and the leaves done for the first section before I got distracted! I will get it done before I start my stitch along with Karen - we're going to be stitching Country Cottage Needleworks Bunny Hop - I'd like to finish and frame mine in time for Easter.
(terrible photo of it!)
I'm behind with my book reviewing - I've my Feb reads to write up yet and 2 book reviews for the Historical Fiction challenge to write...one of them being my second Transworld Crime Caper book. Blame it on the hexagons!
