Last night, after running into dead ends on several projects*, I haphazardly started this little freeform guy. With absolutely no idea of what I was doing, I made these shapes in french knots and chain stitch with hand-dyed embroidery floss on a vintage hankerchief**. I’m not sure I like it, but I guess that’s not the point. And I really have no idea where to go from here. I was going to make the shape of a cancer cell or some type of germ next, but it turns out they’re not shaped like what I thought they were shaped like. Any thoughts on where I should go from here?
*ran out of yarn for a blanket, yarn in the mail for an infinity scarf, unreachable iron for an embroidery transfer, total lack of desire to work on a Valentine’s Day gift.
**Relax, I have a bajillion of these. I have no concerns about wasting the lovely fabric on something stupid like this.
