Peru


Things seem to be back to normal now. The computer is, hopefully, well protected from viruses and I have a back up system. Along the way I am much wiser about files, formats, dvd drives etc.. I used the brilliant Pfaff Talk site to get information to re format my Creative Card in the Pfaff 7570; I did lose designs but can now make a new start. The local sewing machine shop coudn't help and suggested I buy an expensive new card.
This piece with Peruvian birds is stitched on hand made felt with some silk tops felted in. The patterns were inspired by a work colleague who has just walked the Inca Trail. The stitching is in part done with the 7570 embroidery unit and in part free machining.The birds are painted with bronze powder and Ormoline Fabric Medium.

  4. I like the movement in this piece and the colors are so rich against the black. They really pop off the surface. Nicely done!

  5. Isn't it frustrating when the computer doesn't work? Imagine, it was only a few years ago we didn't even have them!

    I love the Peruvian birds. I've always been facinated with archeology & ancient designs.
