My Finished Indigo Fabric Wall Hanging

21st August 2014

Greetings from a very wet and windy Blackpool.

 I have been working in my loft space listening to the rain pounding on the roof and it reminded me of caravan holidays in North Wales!!


I spent a couple of hours finishing my wall hanging that I prepared at my course with Anne Griffiths at Oxford Summer School.....

I used a driftwood stick to thread through the attached loops....



....and a variety of joining stitches on the raw frayed edges, I wanted this effect!

I used my dyed bamboo yarn for these joining stitches....

...cross stitch for loops...


...and a variety of stitches for the rest, some I made up!!


These stitches are made by tacking/pinning the two fabrics onto paper with an equal space between them then making the stitches on the fabric only...





....I am quite pleased with the result. 
A good way to record my brilliant week in Oxford.
