So, I did a little stitchy project last night, and it's an ever-so-slight departure from my normal stuff. I tend to stitch on plain fabric, usually muslin. I enjoy the way things look when stitched on patterned fabric (like this little slice of cuteness, for example), but I just haven't been able to find the right pattern & fabric combo...until now.
Take a look at what I stitched last night:

I am SO in love with this little violet! I call her Shy Violet (yes, sometimes I give my projects names, so what??) because of the way she's almost hidden in the pansy print of the fabric. I've never done anything like this, and I love the way it turned out. Shy Violet worked up quickly, too. Quick and cute, win-win! :)
Here she is chillin' on my desk:
And here is a close-up shot of her sweet little face:
And here she is, looking sideways toward the window. It was sunny today, and Shy Violet was enjoying the view.
Ok, I made that last part up. Despite the fact that I have given her a name, I am well aware of the fact that Shy Violet is an inanimate object and is incapable of seeing things, such as a nice view out of a window on a lovely morning in May. ;)
Well, that's all for now, my lovelies! I will be back soon with more stitchy goodness. I'm excited about the next project I have in the works and can't wait to share the details with you. Until then...
