Today I proud to present the first four blocks. Each block is marked with a running stitch to outline them and is filled with something symbolic.
Mystery and Listen to the wind.
With the drop of water I used a variation on the running stitch.
This one is made in the stemstitch again.
And the unique diamant of felt is sewed on with a buttonhole stitch.
Maybe you are wondering why I name the stitches I used, something I normally don't do. Well I get some questions sometimes about the stitches I use in a particular piece. It is very difficult to remember for me which stitch I used when. This piece will consist of 238 blocks and remembering each stitch is an impossible task for me. Therefore this small service for all your embroidery-lovers and my brain.
I decided not to explain each symbol but to give you the chance to give meaning to the symbols yourself. If you really interested in knowing the meaning I give to a particular symbol please ask.
Have been stitching all night and listening to the most beautiful music, a little taste of my soul food. Have a fantastic weekend and hope to see you monday.
Last night just before I posted this I listened to the concert of the Eagles, Hell freezes over. It was a wonderful concert and I'm very glad I heared it. Tonight I found out that it is banned. I'm sorry for this.
