During the bright hours













This is part of the little bit of embroidery I was able to do in Denmark. The patterns are Estonian again, surprise. And they will be two of the 3 biscornus which my friend C ordered. I started another embroidery I don't really like; it is meant to be an abstract landscape in the colours of the Danish landscapes I saw. The blues of the water, dim shores on the other side, green hedges, ripe wheat fields. I had all the beautiful shades of blue crewel wool and not enough light in the hut. The windows were small, and the lamps took more light than they gave. Alright, when the weather was good enough to embroider outdoors, I was able to do so until half past nine in the evening. And writing the journal + illustrating it with water colour was one of my regularly kept habits. And here is the beginning of my galeries. More is on the way!

I like the countryside embroidery, Although I would be afraid to finish it because it is very evocative as it is.
