Working with little bits of textiles that would normally be discarded is immensely satisfying. A strip of linen/rayon torn off the edge, embroidered with French knots anchoring it to the blue and white fabrics. Random seed stitches in a cotton thread finer than the hand dyed perle cotton. Textures and colours, gauze, velvet, lightness and luxurious depth!
A beautiful indigo dyed silk velvet strip was cut off to straighten the edge of a shawl. So silky and intense in colour, I incorporated it into this stitch meditation.
