I am enjoying working with the earthy tones below...very Australian colours (fabrics...one is a vintage japanese kimono fabric and the other a hand dyed fabric from my recent trip to Thailand).
|my stitching this week|
The torn strips were for my fabric weaving and I have added the stitched moon. At the moment this block is just basted down, but more stitching will appear as this cloth evolves. I dont want to add too much stitching/embellishing as yet as I'm not sure where this is going and will add more once it has grown a bit and I can see the story more clearly.
I do love fabric weaving and the torn edges give such an organic look to cloth. Again I have used the old kimono fabric and the hand dye from Thailand. I enjoyed stitching the ragged cross stitches in my moon, reminds me of the stitch used in boro cloths to strengthen a cloth.

Off to work again tomorrow....I count down those three days until I am home again and stitching/painting.
Jude has been talking about edges these past couple of weeks, so I thought this quote from Sark fitting...
