The latest ''in progress'' sample for my planned mini sample portfolios. This one has striped silk in shades of grey and off whites which I bought in London earlier this year. So far one seam is embellished with French knots and web stitches run the length of a strip of striped silk. When I laid this piece alongside the piece from yesterday it struck me how well they live together, it started me thinking about a bigger piece using this combination of cloth. I am resisting though, trying not to get distracted.
The main reason for my resistance is a plan I have to develop something which I have been working on for class, for ''stitching a story....'' My girls don't even know yet but hopefully when it develops I can share a tiny glimpse of it on here for you. The girls get to hear about it on Sunday.....
(stitching a story girls......I may be able to post late Saturday afternoon. I will let you know :))
Simply Stitch 4 was re-listed as a work on your own class yesterday after a couple of requests.. You will find that here.
