Another grey day with intermittent periods of sun. My sewing machine sits in the window of my space and my hands get very cold quickly.
Progress today stitching Neolithic spirals, from the back of my piece, with a variegated thread wound in the bobbin. I don't get to see the front until I turn it over … always a fun/frightening technique to use.
But in all fairness, I did try to hand-stitch the other piece, and although I haven't made up my mind to continue or not, hand-stitching through that watercolour paper was pretty tough !
The yarn I chose for this piece is one that was hand-dyed by my friend Dianne Gibson. In good light it ebbed from dk. grey to cream to dk. blue. It also had a thin plastic/mylar thread in the mix which didn't take on any colour but provides shine.
You can see the plastic strand pulling to the right of the pic. below. Sorry, lamp light just isn't good with my camera.
