Embroidery in All Shades of Gray


 Last year I found a printed embroidery kit at the thrift store. Lots of flowers and plants, and I believe it came with a mess of crewel yarn. 

I threw that out.


I knew I wanted to embroidery this whole great big piece in just shades of gray. So I bought every shade I could find at the craft store.


When I finished, I thought it still needed something, so I went in and embroidered random star shapes here and there above the plants and in between them. And then scattered it with clear seed beads.

Soon I will make it into a pillow.

Your embroidery looks flawless. Mine, on the other hand, looks a little bit like a first-grader did it.....

This is probably one of my favorite-ever projects you have done. It is just gorgeous.
