Eyelets

We had a lovely morning visiting some of the open studios in the Hampshire Artists scheme.Prints, felt,glass and digital photos were particularly memorable. As you know I am really keen on experimenting with working on felt , and you can see some inspiring work at raspberry.

I have just finished a piece using mainly eyelets; after reading Julia Caprara's article in Quilting Arts I fancied doing some hand stitching and got out my stiletto.

I layered some painted scrim over in parts and worked some eyelets on the machine. It made a nice change to work some pretty intensive stitching.

  7. I completely agree with Deb H -- your's is much nicer than the one in QA. I really like your changes in scale, and the fact that you've left some "breathing spaces." Do you have problems with the chenile yarn "stripping" it's fuzz off, or is that not such a problem with a loose weave like the scrim"
