A few days ago I finally finished (I think) another small textile piece that I started after I'd been to the Knitting and Stitching Show.
|Three Shells - 10cm x 20cm|
It's embellished sari silk, with silk fibres, banana yarn and scrim. I've sort of stitched the shells on, which are years and years old (there's a good reason for not throwing stuff out!) and then added a few french knots. I'm having problems stopping the shells from falling off, but if I don't touch it they're fine! Anyone know a good way to secure them?
If you're interested in textiles and live near Bury St Edmunds, the 'Out of the Fold' exhibition is well worth a visit. Fran and I went yesterday and were really impressed, it's on until the 29th Oct. And if you want a cuppa afterwards then head to 'Harriets' - lovely tea, and the cakes looked good too, although we both managed to resist (this time!)
