Threads of Thought on creating with cloth and stitch
Penny, what a wonder this is. Was it hard to stitch through the lichen? I imagine that it would break as the needle sewed through? Lichen are ethereal, mysterious and beautiful in form. Have decorated with some windfall lichen by placing the little lichen covered twig on a tiny grapevine wreath. This summer collected lichen windfall to make dye and got a beautiful almost peach tan color.
Wonderful colours. I wonder where the piece will end up.
I must try this stitch! Perhaps not soon, but you've sparked my imagination yet again. Are you just playing or do you have plans for it? BTW, I do so love the soft colours.
this stitch is also on my list to try. beautiful result.
I love the thread you used! I have to learn this stitch... love the swirly effect!;~) Debi
Amazing stitch...and amazing Penny, you post so quickly that I can hardly follow you.
Great stitching Penny! I saw it at T's site too, but I didn't try it yet ... The variegated thread makes it even more beautiful.
whirling lichen, they look lovely, lots of possibilities there. k.
Hey Marti: I didn't stitck through the lichen, just onto grey cotton. That last photo is an overlay of the two photographs.AM & Dolores - I am just playing at the moment; but they could end up in a finished piece.Aracne - I'm sorry I'm too fast for you! I expect I'll be slower sometimes.Kaite, Els, Debi & Deanna It's worth exploring. I agree Kaite - lots of possibilities
Thanks for the explanation; to me, it looked like it too had been stitched to the grey cotton; DUH!
Never seen this stitch before and have to try it out. It has lots of possible applications, for sure.
It's a beautiful stitch...I've been playing too.Jacky xox
Me too re: the circular stitch. It's on my list to use someday. Your juxtaposition with the lichen is wonderful. I'm interested to see what comes next in this line of thought.
Thank you for taking the time to comment, your thoughts are most welcome.
