Autumn Hare

It’s late Autumn in Canberra and the early mornings are very chilly. Some mornings the hares come down from the reserve and just sit on the road soaking up the sun.

One was there this morning and reminded me of a gentle piece embroidered by my sister-in-law Jennifer.

It’s framed in a quilter’s hoop so it’s quite large. Jen stitched it a while ago and thinks it was kit but has lost the details.

The design and flow of the stitching look like pen strokes.

More thread drawing than thread painting.

The choice of colours gives a sense of a nature study and I especially loved the mix of green shades

Hope you’re having a great morning wherever you are!
