After getting everything back in order I had time to have a small snooze, eat lots of prawns, watch TV, wash the table linen and do a little quilting.
Keith thought it would be a good day to entertain…. but I sort of declined the suggestion !!!!
I've begun work on the new thread painted piece.
I have my doubts as to whether I can complete it.
The small piece shown is about 3 hours work so far. I enjoy doing it but do I have the time?
The challenging thing is that the image I printed on fabric isn't really clear. I have to redraw the detail… well at least outline it with pencil.
I'm testing a variety of threads… already I have dismissed one thread… a tri-lobal poly… it splits too much to work with fine stitching.
I will use a combination of cotton and silk.
I was nervous about getting a small one, but I love it already. It will be easier to travel with.
