It was only after photographing the pinned layers on the design wall
that I fell in love with the little colourful dots.
It sent my mind a wandering
Perhaps I should consider
combining some discharged pebbles
and black walnut dyed linen
tiny colour filled dots.
Finally I have made a start on this piece
Two layers basted together
and first embroidery stitches have been made.
It is very big for me
Bigger than I usually work
Perhaps that is why I seem to have found every excuse
in the book
to delay the start of stitching.
Though from pinning cloth together on the design wall
and the start of started
is always a long period of time for me.
I seem to need to absorb what the cloth is telling me
whether to go this way or that way
with colour and stitch.
Things need to percolate
before I get my grubby little hands on it!
