Where do I start?
There's nothing to work off of, no stuff to build on.
The yawning chasm of the blank canvas.
Sometimes design comes easy, sometimes, not so much.
My advise, just start. Roll the dice, pick a few random numbers and pick a book, choose choose a design and go for it.
The pretty floral bonnet is felt sewn down with floss and sre accordion rose
I wanted something to fill in but not take away from the lavender fabrics it seemed to not be playing well well with the rest of the block
I did a lot of beading on this piece as well
Year one was stitches and beading
Year 2 was living through the year
This year it's sre. I don't do a lot of it so this year I've challenged myself to do more, bigger, blousier sre.
Also to do more inn the way of embroidered scene motifs
Like the bird and the bonnet
