I sat down yesterday to stitch on a stone. I pulled the lovely turquoise merino out of my stash and intended to use subdued shades of white and grey, reflecting the weather outside my window. I had icicles in mind and a cup of tea by my side.
Instead, it seemed my subconscious was thumbing its nose at our grey weather and I reached for bright orange, yellow, and green instead. I have something close to a circus stone going on with those colors. I kept asking myself "where am I going with this?". I still have some more stitching to do so we'll see how it ends up.
