My friends and family would say that I can't sit still and be quiet. Period.
Hmm...maybe they are correct.
I've been using up my eco dyed/natural dyed scraps (and I do mean scraps) on a small piece of handwork.
I used pieces that are about 2-3 inches long (and wide) and put them on a canvas base.
Then began stitching.
I also used my natural dyed threads (except one piece of rust DMC thread) and they look wonderful on the fabrics!
The natural dyes seem to glow from within.
I am using a hoop this time since the fabric weights are so different.
Here's a few in-progress peeks.
|See the pieces of thread on the left?|
All of those were dyed with plants and metals.
|Rust stained thread|
|I couldn't help but slip this bold color of thread in...|
|Vintage homespun fabric!|
|Colors of Iron|
|Cottons, linens, jersey|
|Looks like a bee hive|
|A monoprint from something in my bin of goodies|
|Rusted fabric, rusted thread|
|I took this thread out of my "rust bin" too early |
but I couldn't help myself.
I have more cooking.
It's a work in progress for sure.
