I haven’t been writing much lately; however, I’ve still been stitching, even if only for a bit at a time. So now I have pictures of three animals, four really since there are two penguins, to share. These are destined to be used as appliques on my Australia embroidery. They are all sketched from photos taken on our travels in Australia this past summer. First is the kangaroo.
Next are the penguins.
And then there’s the emu. He’s my favorite.
I haven’t started the actual stitching for the wall hanging, as I was waiting to see what I thought after the animals were done. I’m glad I did hold off because my original plans for the background fabric did not look good with them. I’ve pulled and stacked some alternative fabrics and am thinking about my options. In the meantime, I’ll work on another something that I’ve been thinking about. I do like to have more than one project in progress.
