I had some scrap cotton and was dying to play with some new thread I got at the NEC last month and these were the result. The thread is Wonderfil Tutti and Spaghetti in various shades. It’s a fairly thick cotton that covers well if you are thread painting. I treated myself to a titanium top stitch needle which performed well with the thread. Might stitch these on to Mr Grasshopper’s bag!
And here is my latest muse, Mr Grasshopper. Saw him in a Sunday newspaper and couldn’t resist picturing him in thread. In fact, I have stitched a few more on to multi-coloured scrap ready to make another bag. Just for a change.
Threads used were mainly Gutterman varigated cotton with some green embroidery rayon topped off with some Maderia green metallic.
Pug apron made from scraps left over from my last cushion frenzy. It’s basically an old quilt cover and some plain blue and red cotton that I free-machined with a Pug. Sadly, it was rejected as being too angry for a cushion so it now has a new life as an apron in a student house.
I’m not entirely sure I like it……
