Colour Stitching




After playing with colours in my sketch book, oil pastels are great for this, I love the intense colours I can get, I moved on to my threads and fibers.

Working this time on a smaller scale 8cm x 11cm , I used mainly hand stitching.
I thought I would try selling some smaller art pictures on etsy and a few original sketches along side my brooches.
My larger pieces, I have to save for an exhibition in the coming year.
I'm not very efficient at listing items to sell, I seem to be very slow, so for this New Year I'm going to try and be more organized.
I think I say that every year!

What kind of sewing machine do you use? I am just starting out and I have a cheap machine, but I am wondering about a more industrial quality one?

Your trees are gorgeous....

Heather said...

This new tree design is gorgeous - I wouldn't need a feel good film if I had that on my wall. I just love the way you put the colours together.

WOW! Incredible!! Love your stuff. would you consider somehow aligning a piece now and then to fit onto creative Tuesdays on my blog and sign up? I'd be be so honoured. You are very inspirational!

Mmm said...

BTw, I wouldn't expect you to do something as intricate as this so any time you can join in on the Creative Tuesday would be brill. And rememember each entry helps add up to a chance for a superb gift drawing.
