Hmm... Seems to me that I have a thing for seasonal themes. I like the fact how something can look so different just because of the changing of the season, how the scenery and the earth changes with time. It facinates me how the more things change, the more they stay the same. Then again, maybe it's just because I like things that comes in a set/series which is probably why Mirabilia's Queens and Maidens of the Seasons and Passione Ricamo's Fairy Spirits, Ladies and Beauty Princesses are all on my wish list. Hehehe... ambitious? I don't think so! Anyway, that aside, here's my "Summer Chair" from "4 Seasons Chairs" by Janlynn Corp. Yup, you've guessed it, it's another RR of mine this time with Char and Vash. And yes, we're missing a participant in this RR that's due to start on 3rd July. Anyone wanna join in? It's an all evenweave RR.
So how did I end up choosing summer to stitch? At first, it was a struggle between spring and summer for me. Finally, unable to choose, I decided to ask Eddie and EeKoon for their input. Both of them agreed on summer so it was a no brainer from there. How could I argue with two of the wisest people in my life? Of course, there's also the logic that Malaysia's a tropical country so I might as well stitch summer since that's the season we enjoy, or should I say sweat through, all year round.
I really love this design though I quickily grew bored stitching the sand. Got sick of the sandy colours which I'm sure EeKoon could relate. LOL! Other than that, once I started with the red and purples, the piece stopped looking dull and I sped through the rest. I was imagining lazy days spent relaxing on the beach with a good book while stitching it. However, I think the picture is missing a stitching bag. If not, excuse the pun, it would've been picture perfect. *Grin*
