This is the weirdest thing I've ever stitched.  It will be my COVID-19 piece. I actually started it before all this began. I wanted to combine several of the abstract coaster designs by Cresus into one and wasn't having any luck. I just couldn't make anything work. So I just kept stitching. Connecting lines, curvy mostly, my favorite colors of course. Tried out DMCs new grays. It became vaguely humanoid. It's not very big. On 18-count about 3-4". Anyway, I don't know what it is, but it's finished. I doubt if I'll do anything with it. No, I don't know why the red triangles are there or why they are positioned that way.

Geode Bargello

I tried to make a Bargello geode. It may have gotten away from me a bit. Ya think?  Not quite my usual tidy Bargello is it?  Well it is done and will go into a Sudberry House tray. Here it is pre-finishing:  if the recipient doesn't like it I will make another, more traditional Bargello for her.                                          Here it is in the tray
Sorry about this messy post. Blog does NOT like it when I post from my iPad!
