WIP: “April Showers”

I’m using Digital Misfit’s “April Showers” design to do some embroidery+applique+crayon-tinting. I’ve done the applique and crayon-tinting and am now starting on the embroidery.

I’d planned to use only black floss for the umbrella and the girl + her clothes (like xperimentl’s Valentine’s Girl), but that’s already feeling a little heavy to me so I’ll frog the outlining around the umbrella and bust out my containers of embroidery floss to choose some colors that I think will work better on this project.

While I’m stitching, I’m watching Firefly — I’ve come to the “sci-fi side” a bit later in life than most folks seem to, but better late than never, eh? ;-)
