..Sunny Stitchin' Sunday...

The weather actually held up, and Sunday was even brighter and hotter than Saturday!

So.......

....the day was spent out on the patio with a basket of wool and threads.....





These are being used to make a few panels for the Expo in June....


The pieces start off like this.....





The fabric backing is partially painted with Pebeo Setasilk paints, and then covered with seeding stitches using a hand-dyed fine silk thread.


The other side is batik fabric that has been printed with wooden print blocks.


Once the seeding has been finished......







....the centre section is then covered with couched yarns/fabric strips etc, and chunky stitching.....









..More tomorrow when (hopefully) at least one will be finished!.....
