Cathy's Block of All Wool DYB

ウールDYB のキャシーのブロックに刺繍しました。彼女のテーマは北部の森林の季節ということでしたので、何となくこんなふうに木を配置しました。

Cathy's theme is "North Woods- Seasons". First I've arranged trees like this.



季節はやっぱり春でしょうと気楽に考え、ウールの布が断ち切りであまり重なりもなく接いであるので、シームステッチで押さえるのに針葉樹とかブルーベルとかそれなりに考えたつもりでした。木には白い花とか。でも何だか森林のイメージからはどんどん遠ざかっていく感じだし、まるで子供の描いた下手な絵のようだし、絶望的な気分のまましばし中断。

I easily planned to make a spring scene because it's spring now. But while stitching I realized the scene was going away from "North Woods". I desperately kept stitching a bit more and stopped for a while. It had become worse.



今さら全部ほどいてやり直すことも無理なので、ここはもう開き直るしかないと心を決め、出来上がったのはまさしく日本の風景ですね。キャシーががっかりしないでくれるといいのですが。
But it impossible to redo all. I made my mind to finish though it looks just like a Japanese field scene in Spring. I hope Cathy won't be disappointed with my work so much.



東北はまだ寒い日が多く桜もこれからですが、我が家の庭にも少しずつ春が訪れつつあります。
Spring is near though we have still cold days here. Cherry blossoms will bloom in this weekend or a bit later?

North Woods to Spring is lovely and since Spring has arrived very appropriate. :)

I come to see what you have been up to several times a week. I must say I am always pleasantly surprised and I have an arsenal of eyecandy as inspiration for my projects. Thank you much.
