Machine stitched picture

20th June 2013

Today I made a picture using the fabric and yarn that I dyed earlier in the week.

I took one of my yarn bundles and proceeded to couch. I used a wide zigzag in variegated thread.
It took about 45 minutes to cover the fabric with yarn.


I was pleased with the richness of the colours.

I then cut a circle out of scrim that had been backed in Bondaweb and ironed this in the centre of the fabric. I changed the thread, still variegated, from pinks to blue/green and made a smaller width satin stitch diagonally across the circle. I then mounted it in a frame and was so pleased with the result I signed and dated it!! (in pencil)




I really enjoyed the whole process of making this picture.
