After roasting us for two weeks, the weather is now overcast so these pictures are a little dark. I have finished applying the fabric pieces and just need to do the embroidery – stem stitch and buttonhole stitch. I like the way the colors work together and how crisp the contrast between the applique pieces and the background fabric turned out to be.
It doesn’t look like much yet, but after I cut the yoke out and do the buttonhole stitch around the neck and bottom of the yoke, I think it will look great. I plan to do the neck buttonhole stitch in the same variegated yellow floss that is going around the flowers.
In the meantime, I have three big paper bags full of peaches from our tree to put up today and tons of basil to pick and make into pesto.
