Shall I, shan't I?

I've finished my three stitching samples for chapter three, so technically I've finished the chapter.

However I have this idea that keeps popping in to my head to explore straight stitch just a little more and may be try another little sample based on this picture from the Keukenhof gardens in Holland.For some reason this picture has stayed in my head. It's taken a grip on some of that loose brain matter that I have rolling around in there and it won't let go.

The sensible part of my brain is telling me just to move on and try and catch up a bit of time on that self impose schedule that is also rattling round in my head.

But somehow I don't think I'm going to be able to move on, until I give this a try. It's not actually a required part of the course, but I think this silly daft head of mine somehow won't be able to think of this chapter as complete unless I give it some more play time.

Hmmm shall I, or shan't I?

  1. It's a great photo, and I agree with you it would look wonderful with lines of stitching representing the structure / whatever it is that's in the foreground. Actually, I think it would look good as a foreground to other floral backgrounds too. But in the photo the limited yellow and white palette is lovely.
