Stitches Like 'Buttah'...
As I mentioned last Monday, I've finally got out my Babylock 12 Needle Embellisher again and I've started a new piece. I'm using little bits of dupioni silk as well as some wonderful silk 'yarn' which I've been hanging on to for a while, and embellishing it onto a felt background. I love the richness of the colours and the texture is so fabulous to work with! I just love hand stitching through felt and silk!
Here are a couple of close up shots of the beginnings of some couching I'm doing with some of the silk 'yarn' pieces.
It's time to pull out some of my embroidery books for some inspiration! One of my favourite books is Judith Baker Montana's Free-Form Embroidery. It's a stunning book, full of so much wonderful inspiration!
