Experimenting....

14th August 2016

I bought this book a while ago......


....it is beautifully presented....


....I have so many pieces of hand dyed fabric in different textures thought I would make up some colour/stitch samples-slow stitching is so relaxing...

...pinned and ready to stitch...

....fabrics are muslin, scrim, silk, cotton, linen , velvet and indigo dyed cotton lace....


...chose a variety of threads...


....the result, I really wanted to add orange thread but resisted the urge this time!

The shape on the left is a short piece of wool yarn which I couched.


Think I might choose red next......

....also want to try some layering, texturing and heating samples, very therapeutic to play!!
