New Inspiration for a change--a monochromatic design start



Started a new design tonight while catching up on some TV. I designed this piece a month or so ago, inspired by my hubby and a Dutch Proverb. His sillouhette.
I got part of his head done tonight. Solid stitching, monochromatic piece on 28 ct Cashel Sand linen with Weeks Dye Works, Deep Sea (a beautiful blue).

This gives my eyes a bit  of a break with a darker monochromatic color on a lighter linen.
And~~his profile, mustache and all. ;)
The Dutch proverb reads " Agree, agree, for the law is costly".
This will be framed to sit by his usual comfy chair.

I decided to dig out my lap frame that I haven't used in a while. A long while.

Hope your stitchy week is going well and your Wednesday brings some inspiration to make your heart joyful!
