I have been checking out some interesting blogs recently too and came across this exciting Sewing Circle called 'I've Been Thinking of You' who are organising a world wide sewing circle day on the 13th Jan 2010, anyone can take part anywhere, check out the rules and more info on their blog. I will definately be joining in:
So now here are some images of some work I started on News Years Day:
I took an piece of abandoned knitting I did ages ago and added some orange embroidery thread, I just wanted to see what happened, and if I could reserect something that was long forgotten.
This piece is a new beginning. I took a piece of felt I had made a few months ago while demonstrating the technique in a workshop and cut it into a long thin strip. I played around with different bits and in the end added a strip of an old painting with machine stitching on, I secured this with a piece of scrim and some orange zig zag stitching. The green circle is yet to be attached. It is another piece of handmade felt cut into a circle, and although I think the colour works really well, I am unsure of the placement. Something to work on.
I hope everyone can benefit from Elizabeths wise words of advice. The need to make is there in all of us. Just start. Happy making everyone.
