This is where it all started for me but times change and now all of my blogging takes place over at my

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.


  1. I LOVE the stitching. It really brings it alive.

  2. Beautiful textures from the stitching.

  3. very interesting idea!! looks very beautiful!

  4. I absolutely love this!! I just bought a few sheets of hand felted wool the other day and cannot wait to start handstitching them now!

  5. That is a really nice effect, fun to experiment.


  6. Not sure I agree with the previous comment ( spam?) but its a beautiful piece! Love the texture


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".
