Painting With Threads


Just a quick post to show how my embroidery is coming along.
I wanted to use the strong , rich colours from my painting so I have embellished pure silk on to the wool felt.
I wish you could see the lustre of the silk , it is so beautiful to use.
It measures 10cm x 13cm.
A few more stitches to add and then it will be finished.
I did the original painting in Italy, a wonderful place called Alassio.

This is far nicer than a painting I think, i love the movement and the way the tread gives a jewel like quality.
