Yesterday DH and I had a semi-sanity day (and no comments from the peanut gallery regarding our mental state, please and thank you...lol). We sometimes just get in the car and head out for parts unknown just to escape from the house and all that goes along with it. We ended up driving through Algonquin Park (which, for those of you not from Ont. Canada, is probably the largest park in our province). It was too early for the leaves to have done much changing of colour but there were a few red trees here and there. We started the day having breakfast with our friends. All in all a nice day, but no stitching got done at Chez Magpie.
I made up for that today and completed these two areas...
The bulrushes are primarily silk ribbon with some floss straight stitches. The flower has a felt leaf and the petals were made using a woven stitch with pearl cotton; satin stitch and French knots.
EDITED TO ADD: Linking up to the Super Mom- No Cape's Stitchery Linkie party HERE.
Today your quote is from Marcel Proust.... "The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes"
