The tiny tree has french knot foliage and split stitch trunk. I gathered ribbon yarn and sewed on seam. I would like to add something else to this vignette, maybe a little bird?
AND another polymer clay face I antiqued with brown acrylic paint. I had started beading around it and realized that just tacking it down was not secure enough and I needed a better definite edge to keep my beading nuzzled up close, so I glued it down. Seems like it will work. I want to try to do a peyote stitch like on a cabachon. Will see how that goes!
I spent hours today stitching and I feel more caught up on my current projects. I am ready to mail Jody's block to Nicki this week, just have to journal in her book first. The other block isn't due to be mailed til the end of July so I feel I am on track.
I anticipate a busy, stressful week at work. But when it's over I have a week off. I have high hopes and expectations for progress that week that may not match my energy and ambition!
