My 28 Days piece is coming along ...
Days 5 and 6
Days 7 and 8
Days 9 and 10
So far I've embroidered ten circles, one each day. There will be a total of 28, arranged in seven rows of four. I'm using a sequence of seven colors, which will repeat four times, and a sequence of nine different stitches. The 28th circle will repeat the seed stitch that was used in the first circle. So the circles will come full circle.
I realized early on that I was not going to be able to stitch perfect circles. They're all a little wonky, which I am growing to like. They remind me of something one of my favorite artists, Agnes Martin, wrote: "Perfection is not necessary. Perfection you cannot have."
