Guess what? I completed the challenge!
Here is the blackwork piece I showed you last time. Sorry it's not a great pic, but my camera batteries ran out of juice and of course I didn't have any more AA's in the junk drawer. Grrrr. But I don't want to wait until I've had a chance to go buy more batteries to show you this, even though it would mean a clearer, crisper pic. I am really anxious to share this!
I definitely see more blackwork in my future!
And, because I loved September's Color Challenge very, very much, I decided to do a second piece (which I managed to get a good shot of before the camera batteries died).
Eeeeeep! ♥ This is from a Japanese embroidery book I bought on Etsy a couple years ago. This is my first time stitching anything from the book...in fact, I do believe it's my first time stitching something from any Japanese embroidery book (I have a few). Why did I wait so long?
This piece, like the blackwork one, is super tiny. I didn't actually break out the measuring tape, but I'd estimate it to be about 2x2.5 inches.
(By the way, that "K" on the mug was not part of the original pattern. Isn't it cute, though?)
I looooooooooooved doing this challenge. It was fun to venture out and try something new. I highly recommend it. I look forward to future Color Challenges! I may even play with some of the past challenge palettes. I've had my eye on Fresh Picked and Color Breakfast since they debuted this summer.
How 'bout you? Have you participated in any of the Color Challenges? Do you plan to soon? Please, do tell!
