The Pleasure of Running Stitch....

5th July 2015

Another busy few days......

.....cutting out triangles to decorate the park pavilion next Sunday on Centenary Day....


....I then needed to buy tape for the bunting so walked to South Shore, about a mile, to a fabulous haberdashery shop....

......walked back along the promenade with my purchases....

....love these colours....


.....visitors waiting for the tide to go out...


....shrieks could be heard from the Big One on the Pleasure Beach....


.....those clouds look a bit ominous....


.....got caught in the heavy rain on the last part of my walk!!


>>>>>>>>

Received this fabric screen print from a blogger friend, I love these colours, not sure yet whether to add stitch detail....



.....I have been Kantha stitching while listening to a story tape, soooo relaxing and I really like the effect.....

....my latest project...


....the centre panel is a leaf print on rusted fabric and Kantha ( running ) stitched....




.....same stitch for side panel....


....right side panel. I decided to see the effect of varying the length/width of stitch....


.....added folded rusted muslin fabric and fringed, dyed polyester....



......a leaf shape...


.....really enjoyed my day, must try to finish the bunting tomorrow!
