Stitch a day project

I am pretty pleased with myself.  I have managed to stay up to date with commitments and challenges.  No easy feat with having had a three week holiday on the other side of the world!  Admittedly, this stitch a day project got a bit stalled.  I took a package of silk threads with me on holiday.  They had been languishing for years and I decided it is time to use them.  I started stitching with said silk threads at the beginning of the month.  After about a week I realized there really isn't enough color variety for me.  They are all light in tone and for a work to pleasing there needs to be darks and mediums.  When I got home I dug out more silk threads and continued stitching.  Stitching silk threads onto silk fabric was lovely.

I agree this is unusually light, almost monochrome, to be your work, but I think it is FABULOUS! More please!

This is quite yummy. I like how you've introduced colours while maintaining the calm serenity of the piece and I agree -- silk on silk is wonderful!
