I can’t seem to leave this one. As it ages, the natural dyes fade and it begs for some attention. Most recently I have added extra blue and green flowers lush some dark French knots. This is in danger of becoming the perpetual embroidery piece.
No idea what to do with it. It’s too fragile to use so I guess it will end up behind glass instead of being touched. :-(
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!
