Hello all! Thank you so much for such a lovely, warm welcome to the &Stitches blogging team the other day - I'm so honored to be here among such amazing stitchers!
To start off easy, I wanted to share this incredible piece found in the &Stitches Flickr Pool by Jules, who blogs at The Awkward Niche.
Jules calls this fellow a 'Moon Deer', based on her own sketch of a 'deer-like creature'. Neverminding the beautiful fill stitching, the gorgeously subtle color palette, those floaty french knots so perfectly placed -- I really love the idea of a little silvery creature that lives in secret on the moon.
I always love works of art that have just enough detail to let your imagination fill in the rest - I can totally picture this guy living on the moon, causing mischief, kicking up the moon dust. I'd love to know more about the adventures he gets into!
