Stitching a Seascape...

27h March 2015

Spent a very enjoyable afternoon free machining a seascape with the help of this book....


....I bought this a few years ago before I started my course and when I looked through he pages today found this.....

....silk paper and organza on a paper backing....


......followed the excellent instructions in the book and produced...


....a real learning curve!
(don't know why there is a shadow!)

:::::

Had a little play with my Brusho....


....sprinkled, sprayed...


....will try on fabric next time....


.....the colours are very vibrant....


....will probably try to do something with the seascape at a later date.

When I was on my RSN course I used a free standing embroidery frame for the first time and it was so good to have both hands free to embroider, found this on e-bay for just £10...


....am looking forward to using it.
