Mark making to get myself out of the doldrums led to this little piece, 9.5 inches square, which kept me occupied for most of the week.
It is initially embellished rusted bandage and silk onto a commercial felt background with a centre of waxed and discharged fabric.
I did more embellishing, couching and hand stitching and generally just had fun with it. I even used some glitz in the form of a copper metallic thread.
In order to make the little ‘Os’ I had to go back to my own video for the Stitched Workshops to remind myself how to work them!
