In addition to the moodling, I've begun a new little embroidery of strange creatures and weird flowers similar to the one I attempted with machine stitching. Ugh. Was not at all happy with this one. My machine was giving me trouble with tension, which was eventually remedied, but did not improve my feelings about this practice piece.
So...time to try again. Using a water soluble pen, I drew another version on a small piece of linen (now wish I'd used the beige linen instead of the white; will try that on another day). This experiment is already more enjoyable, if much slower.
