Lovely Post And Work In Progress

Taking shape

Stitching on felt
Brooch from Julia
I had some lovely post this week from Julia missfrugality , we swapped brooches.
Thanks so much, I will be wearing this tomorrow as I am off to Birmingham for the day.
I will be visiting the Rag market, museum and the custardfactory
This week I decided to go back to this painting as I wanted to try it out in felt.
It helps me to come away from work sometimes and then revisit it.
I still have a lot more work to do on this but you can see the first stages.
I can't wait to get into the stitching, my fingers start to tingle!
Stitch marks to me can be as expressive as the marks I make with my brush.
You should see my frantic machine work as I build up the layers.
The hand stitching becomes the rhythms and patterns flowing through the piece.
It may well be Sunday Shopping List this week as I am out all day tomorrow.
Hope you have a good weekend.x

I love how the colours on your felt echo the picture of trees in your last post. Lovely. And lucky you with a 'frugal' brooch.
