stitching at the lavanderia

I'm going to the laundromat in a bit to wash all the blankets in the house - they are too big and too many for my washing machine and thanks for the hurk, Sweetie, and I plan on sitting in the sun and working these two.
I continue to go back and forth between these two as the mood moves me. If I finish a thread and no forward path jumps out at me, instead of dashing on and doing anything ill considered or altogether blind, I'll set it aside and take up the other one.

In both pieces I am hinting and layering images and find myself clipping off pieces of fabric to see what is getting buried, what could be revealed.

the wheat ear escaping on the left is kind of like spring trying to get out from under winter

They are fabulous. I like the mystery of not knowing what is behind but the idea of a snip and trying to figure it out!

well these should keep you busy for a while! I love the colors in both. I REALLY love those moody mossy greens in teh second image and the spattering. Hope you caught a bit of sun today. I sure did! ;)
