Finished something . . .
. . . that has been on the go for a long while, a Doodlesquare this time (the others of this kind were doodlestrips). I've put the pix in backwards as usual, so first, some details -
At first I was mostly trying out stitch variations in various publications of Jan Beaney and Jean Littlejohn, especially the book Stitch Magic, and then just worked on filling in the gaps between those areas with whatever I fancied.
Here's the whole piece, quite random, no plan, just doodling, like you do with a biro on the telephone pad.
