Unfortunately over the last couple of weeks I have struggled with my balance; as I have been unable to get around very much I have had time to rekindle my passion for textile art. I have so many beautiful threads and fabrics that the first problem I have had to overcome is what to choose? I am not going to lie this did take me a couple of days 🙂
My favourite techniques are hand embroidery, free machine embroidery, layering fabrics and adding textures so I have initially concentrated on using these.
Yesterday was a struggle for me with regards to moving around so I sat myself down with a few scraps of organza and tulle, my hand dyed embroidery threads, a few beads and a piece of woven Jacquard cotton. A couple of hours later I was relaxed and pleased with the end result.
I have used some of my favourite colours and stitches including French knots, couched boucle yarn and straight stitch.
I have started some layering and free machine embroidery so hopefully there will be a new post in the very near future ……
