Satin stitch work out

I've spent most of the day today doing fun craft things yipee :) I had to make up for lost time as I didn't get much done yesterday as we spent the afternoon at the Seaside in Weston-Super-Mare. It was blustery and cold but the sunset was amazing. I forgot to take my camera but Mark has some pics on his blog.

Well this design is what I finally came up with for an artsnthemail swap called 'mosiacs' I kept changing my mind about what I wanted to do and orginally this was going to be the background for the card and I was going to layer on top but when I did it I really liked it just the way it was and decided to leave it as it was rather than risk spoiling it. The satin stitch on my machine has had a good work out, I had to make 3 altogether and they have taken me just about all day to cut and stitch all the pieces each one is approx 1/2" square, phew! Still it's only 5pm and the night is yet young so I wonder if I will be able to squeeze in some more and start working on the next swap. If I can keep this up I'll be caught up in no time :)

I've just noticed that I must be in a blue mood as the last two swaps have both used blue. I'll try for something different in the next one, lol!

I can see why you would leave it like this. :-) It looks like it would be alot of work to get that effect. Well done.
