Right hand side and left hand side blackwork… and the first of the greenery 😀
Now macro fun:
Extreme close ups, using a reading spotlight for the light source. I think it works pretty well.
And a helper:
He started off lying stretched out down my legs, adn ended up curling round so I could see his face. He is a very calm and placid cat when he is like this. I bury him in my stitchng supplies – the pattern often lives on his back, and, after 7 years, he is used to being buried like this.
Most other times he is a normal cat – slightly psychotic, slightly neurotic.
