hanging will be approx 14" x 8" each square nearly 3" x 3"
Here are a few pieces waiting to be finished off when I get around to finding a machine with a little bit of Satin Stitch ;) It is on my list to do, just thought I'd get on with some work while sorting it.
cuff 7" x 2"
book 4" x 6"
This will be a book, looks a bit naked without a button or cord.
Think sea pinks, foxgloves. The emerald green of a duck's feather
cards - motif 1" x 1 1/2"
think the blues in a mussel shell
purse 3" x 5"
think the burgundy of a sea urchin,
pendants on the left, no gold as yet, brooches on the right, size as cards
think the gold of the sand & the sun on your back (just not today ;)
sample 2" x 3"
I'm loving doing the hand stitching & the sample above looks like a sample. Not sure how to avoid the 'hanging to be' certainly a work in progress, looking like a sampler, too. I guess most work is a sample of techniques but I was hoping it would be more, but what? I haven't thought it thru enough, no idea what kind of background, I'll get Gwen's book out & think 'rich color' while I'm reading it. When I was laying these out to photograph, some seem a bit blurry, sorry, the DH said the 'hanging' was very hairy, messy - he'd like them to look more like the 'cards' in the 4th pic, neat & well, sort of minimalist. now there's a challenge ;)
