I've had a fun-filled afternoon of cinching up threads on the crepe de chine that I hand-stitched in the evenings last week while we were on our birding trip. Last week I was so tired after full days out of doors, that several times I would nod off and wake up to find the silk and thread in my lap mid stitch!
This is the finished piece, dyed with Colorhue dyes. I'm really pleased with the outcome. The only thread that broke while gathering is the one in the upper right hand corner.
Here's a detail shot of the lower right circle.
I'm really enjoying my class with Glennis Dolce. She is a great teacher, and she is providing videos so that we can actually see her demo the techniques.
Yesterday afternoon I finished the binding on my Shibori piece from my calss at the Barn with Jan Myers Newbury. After sewing on the sleeve, I layed it across the back of the couch, with the backing fabric up, and then I noticed how lovely it looked......I just love the quilting on the back!
Time to take Barker for his evening walk!
Hope you've tied up some loose ends today too! It's a good feeling!!!!!
