Had a busy day today, and decided to be good to me. Then I saw that wool in the bargain bin at a supermarket and couldn’t resist taking it home, although I have no idea what I’m going to do with it. I did hope tast would reduce my stash, among other things, but what it does is make me buy more stuff, because I realize just how many different things you can use in embroidery. And the growing heap of WIPs is yet another topic. I think I’ll need a wip finishing and/or stash using challenge next year.

I also tried some scroll stitch, but that didn’t turn out well at all, I’ll probably rip it out.
here is a detail showing portugese stem stitches I think I’ve gotten right.
here is what I’ve done so far:
