Camouflage Scratchings

A first time for everything
Machine stitching on my scratchings.
Because that has been the work of the week.
Cutting yards and yards of cotton into strips
sewing them back together again.
Cut, sew, press, trim, cut, sew, press, trim.

Then I thought some rusted cloth
might look good atop the piecing

Round and round in circles
representing trips up the valley
to the hospital.

The machine work basically ended up covered with hand work.
Have a lovely week.


  1. That's worked beautifully - a good combination of hand and machine work.

  2. This is BEAUTIFUL! What a lovely effect, and I adore that colour combo.

  3. I agree with the above comments. Lovely combination.

  4. Beautiful work, colour combinations and stitching.

  5. Looks amazing & the colour combo is very effective. Always a gift to see your work!
