I bought two dresses a couple of years ago. Two plain sleeveless dresses, one blue and one green.
Since I bought them, I’ve been meaning to embroider the tops around the neckline. I even picked out a couple of pretty patterns that I’ve stored on my computer.
This year I gave myself a break from knitting to pick up an embroidery needle.
I’m so glad I did! I have rediscovered how pleasant it is to paint with cotton floss! The colors are so pleasing and the motion of putting the needle through the cloth and then pulling it out again.
It’s rhythmic and soothing and it delights my eyes and my spirit.
As you can see, this dress will be wearing a yoke of blossoms. I fancy that they’re impatiens.
The green dress will be adorned with bluebirds.
There’s a new craft shop in town. In Toms River, where I live, there are two craft stores, across the highway from each other, waaaay… over on the other side of town. I’ve been praying for a craft shop on my side of the “universe” and in May my prayer was answered.
I’ll have to do some more cotton floss painting when these two are done.
