I have been playing with some needlework, one is a Christmas gift, not quite finished yet but I haven’t done any for a few years and I had forgotten how much I had enjoyed working out patterns and playing with my threads and beads.
I then covered it with some crystal organza.
I was then going to machine embroider some multi-coloured thread over the top but got distracted by some tubular nylon with a varigated thread running it.
So I couched it all down in a wiggly pattern, with some DMC 5 , which I had dyed many years ago. I had the idea of making a folded wallet for my pocket when I didn’t want a purse. It would make an great bookcover, if the thread wasn’t likely to get caught in everything. So I guess it will sit until the next brainwave hits. Maybe a small evening bag but that is not really something I need. The last has had the colour balanced but is still not quite correct but closer than the first two photos.
I found another 5 sheep and have put them out as well, some end up in the wrong boxes when I pack up my Christmas things.
