|TAST 2012 Week 1 - Fly Stitch|
I couldn't wait for my chores to be done to start, unfortunately it was laundry day today :( :( and I had some administration work to do for my son.
I had my fabric ready, it is 19" x 55" and I have basted the outline of two columns with 26 sections per column. I intend to create a sampler of stitches which I will frame when finished. I will embroider a heading across the two columns at the end to incorporate Take A Stitch Tuesday 2012.
Week 1 was fly stitch which I always see as leaves or ferns

My inspiration came from the two colours I could see looking out from my study this morning. The purples of some primulas in a window box and the red of the geraniums on the verandah.
I also found a butterfly on my keyboard this morning (it is very unusual to see a butterfly in the winter) so I took that as a sign that I should incorporate it into my embroidery today.
