One of the nice things about driving back and forth between Utah and Arizona is that it gives me some time to stitch.
Mr. Cactus does most of the driving, we listen to a good audio book, and I relax with my handwork as the miles go by.
Vintage Deer embroidery #2 is now finished, and ready to be added to the collection of the other vintage pieces that will be placed in a quilt.
I love the rustic nature of this embroidery piece.
It really does look like the drawings from the 1930's-1940's.
Finding different shades of green for the leaves felt like coloring in a coloring book.
The fun thing about embroidery is that you can use your imagination and stitch with any thread color you want.
Bluebells can be orange if you like!
