I used my Inktense blocks to colour the background for this little piece.  I purchased the inktense blocks with embroidery in mind, though it’s my visual art that I seem to be using them in.  I like the vibrancy of this little square and the background colour enhances it, I feel.

The big problem with doing embroidery these days is time. This tiny square – about 3 x 3cm – took months to complete!  Just because I only get a couple of stitches done before my little man needs me, or wakes, or starts to become too interested in the embroidery himself and wants to help.

Now to turn it into a brooch or pendant. How long will that take, I wonder?
