|Another square(ish) completed on my Spanish eyes.|
This project is insane. Truly insane. What the hell was I thinking? I know that making art requires sitting still, but I hadn't considered just how much sitting still a 6 x 14.5 inch cross stitch would take.
|It measures 6 x 14.5 inches. 14 count Aida.|
As I mentioned before, this is my second cross stitch piece. My first design.
I've been binge watching Girls, spending hours alone, bent over the Aida, trying to recreate my own eyes. Rebuilding them, one pixel at a time, in 34 shades of DMC floss.
|The colors of my face are tawny.|
I feel half mad. I doubt myself.
|Mostly, I stitch alone, at night.|
I keep going. Hopeful that this will come together. (I may have other personality problems, but no one can accuse me of having a lack of hope!)
It feel like a metaphor for something larger.
