This is where it all started for me but times change and now all of my blogging takes place over at my
Quilt Routes blog and I hope you will join me over there.

stitching sunday


This is the first of a few samples of different types of stitching surfaces I am doing based on these sketchbook images.


I have felted a couple of backgrounds  using up a variety of fabrics, silk, scrim, voile, just to experiment.
Here I have been hand stitching, thinking that I would cover the whole surface, but decided to leave some open space through which to see the background.

Thank you for taking the time to comment. I do try to respond to each one but
if you do not hear from me it is probably because you are a "no reply blogger".
