Module 2 Chapter 9

Finally reached a point where I can send off a batch of coursework - only a few months late. Chapter 8 was decorating/texturing papers using flour paste, keeping loosely to the theme of opus anglicanum. For chapter 9 I have translated some of these into stitch. Here is a selection.

Above - Coils of metal shim coloured with heat, loose threads held down with long stitches.
Below - couched coils of wire and metal threads over free machining.

Below - transfoiled fabric covered with chiffon, free machining.

Hi Jane, I like your samples. The one with the coils of metal shim reminds me of something but I can't think what it is at the moment!

I enjoyed the Bristol Embroiderers Guild exhibition. Thanks for advertising it on your blog, otherwise I would probably have missed it. There were several pieces there that I really liked.
