Embroidering the Large Pink Bud
Here I am starting on the large pink bud, supposedly related to the large pink flower on its lower left.
Adding some pink shading.
And the finished bud. I'm not too sure I like the color scheme, but well, there it is. Notice the unfinished leaf above the bud? It will stay like that for a while, as I'm almost out of thread for it. Darn it. There are three small pink buds that need to be embroidered; you can see them in the previous post, outlined in yellow. I will complete those before I order any more thread, just in case I have to order more of the pinks.
In other news: the sale of our house closes on Monday, and we move out on Tuesday. There are still several boxes to pack, and at least one trip to the dump to get rid of excess trash. Our receptacles are almost filled and we just had trash collection yesterday. It's a wonder that I'm getting any embroidery done, as I'm usually too distracted to concentrate on it. But we got quite a bit done today and are on track to being completely packed in time. We may even go whale watching on Sunday. The last time we went out all we saw were a few dolphins, so we were give free tickets for another trip. Lately there have been sitings of blue whales, lots of common dolphins, and occasional minke, orca, humpback whales and a bottlenose dolphin or two. Even if we don't see any whales or dolphins, it will be refreshing to get out on the water, and free is always good!
Colorado won't have whales, but it will have grand babies!
