I am joining in with Thursday's My Creative Space at Kootoyoo.
Clockwise from left:
- Calico - a special square
- Moleskine - containing sketches
- Dupion silk
- Threads - embroidery floss and spool of silk
- Buttons - shimmery red shell
- Zipper - chunky open ended
Now there's time to take a breath, regroup and get it right.
So this week its all about red. I am working on the design for my square of this red-work quilt. It will be an applique, as my embroidery is generally a complete dog's breakfast. My sketches are leading me to cherry trees. I think I have been influenced by all the early blossom that has magically appeared this week.
The red zipper pictured, is making a sneak appearance and is completely unrelated. Its for a bit of mend and make do. The zip broke on Bargy's favourite red jacket yesterday. I have never tried replacing a zip ... or unpicking industrial stitching from a fleece fabric ... or shortening a zipper (which I will need to do for this project). Ladies and gentlemen, I think we have ourselves the makings of another disaster.
