stitch time...

Hurrah for spring at last! I'm back in my studio and everything is working, including me! Colour everywhere outdoors and the bleating of lambs means that nature is moving us all forwards into a lovely new creative place...


A long overdue commissioned piece of textile art is finally underway. After looking at the fabrics for a few weeks I boldly cut a backing fabric to size and launched in with cutting the colours...not sure where it was going but that's often the best way. Playing with the fabrics always leads me somewhere...


stripes are feeling like the right thing, and somehow a colourway emerges, with pops of colour and a sense of a journey across the piece. The only request was for a colourful piece so I have the freedom to allow it to evolve...


Adding in some bling with gold makes everything even more vibrant...



and how about some textured orange circles cut from a piece of crochet?



so time to be brave again and get stitching...one by one I start to cover each strip with stitch, to hold it in place, but also alter the surface. I think I may well do 2 or 3 colours on each stripe, mingling and adding a depth of colour and texture. But for now it's basically getting everything in its place...




and always some delicious scraps and threads left over for a future embellishing project...


let's see what happens shall we...

back soon!

meantime enjoy the new light nights and delicious longer days...
