I've been playing with textiles again, trying to create something inspired by the greenness of spring. I know we're nearly in summer but it's taken me a while to get something I'm vaguely pleased with! My first attempt ended up being cut up although bits of it were embellished into number two (whose fate is still being decided). But one evening last week I just started to fiddle with some scraps that I'd got left over from the previous attempts and produced this little piece:
The background is left over silk and scrim that I'd dyed in the microwave, with a silk carrier rod stitched on using the flower stitcher. I'd made the tyvek bead earlier in the week and stitched it on adding some beads. It's only tiny (4" x 2.5"), and rather "random" but I prefer it to any of the previous (more planned) attempts!
