"Flow Blue Skeps" copyright Michelle L. Palmer
Is just home from the frame shop...
Framed with museum glass (zero glare) to protect
the colors and keep it preserved.
Sherry's Bear & Frame Shop in Seneca Falls
Sharing Sir Whale's progress (backwards...)
I use all cotton floss...
Six strands & three strands.
His coat of many colors...
I sketch my design lightly in pencil and then add some contour lines
with three strands... then I start filling in and painting with strings!
'Sir Whale' was his name before I started adding color...
As I was stitching along I was humming, "Down by the Sea..."
Still hum it when I see it!
Hope you have a wonderful week, Sweet Friends!
