Painting is such a relaxing activity.
These landscapes were painted using my watercolours (professional series) onto pure silk fabric.
Embellished with silk rods and my hand dyed threads.
Finally I ‘drew’ into the framed image using Hand stitch.
Stitching has an equally meditative effect in on my being.
Having been asked to create a handmade wall piece to hang in a local farmhouse, my recent time has gone into wet felting and then stitching to create texture and visual interest in this piece.
The request was to portray a feeling of country landscape, using a contemporary approach.
This photo gives you a glimpse of my work in progress, before completion.
I welcome your comments.
Dusting off the embellishing (needle punching) machine it was time to create more brooches.
Working on a piece of pre-felt that I created some time back, I attached pieces of fabric, yarn, and needled these in, followed by stitch to ensure good anchorage.
Next it was time to air my lovely wooden button collection, and beautiful beads, to sit quietly with needle and thread.
I like the organic nature of these…..do you?
