Slow going!

I feel a bit like I'm running in place with this Lee canvas, but I have managed to finish the leaves since my last post.

Like the pansy egg, companion to this canvas, I've stitched the leaves in two shades of green Petite Very Velvet. I love the look, and the texture the PVV gives, while perhaps not noticeable in this photo, is just wonderful.

Back to painting penguins! But if I'm a very good girl, I might be able to start working on the flowers for this canvas tonight!

The leaves are beautiful - especially as they look like little patches of velveteen against a shiny background. PVV is, indeed, a fine thing. I look forward to the flower, so paint fast on the penguins. I'm off to do more underwater stuff.
