Look for rainbows :)

Block number 8 for the 39 squares project...


I've had this one drawn on my trigger cloth for days, but hadn't worked out how I was going to stitch it. The raincloud consists of a variegated Lola thread by Edmar (usually used for Brazilian embroidery) and a solid grey thread of Lola, stitched with French knots and Colonial knots randomly over the cloud to give the mottled effect. The rain is metallic silver, so is very sparkly in real life.

This block is a little reminder to myself to look for the good in situations, rather than dwell on the bad :)
Thank you so much for visiting
