Using various stitches to create textures
I have shared some of these pictures on flickr.
Here are a few more.
This work was inspired by looking at the surface of shells, when you study them, draw them, feel them.
I wanted to show the texture and all the subtle variations of colour.
I then decided to incorporate some of the shells into the fabric, binding them with threads.
I was also working on a few brooches at the weekend, adding different fabrics onto the wool and machine stitching.
Thank you to anyone who has time to read this blog and hope you have a good week.
