Thanks so much Fiona for letting me join the group. I'm a late starter..... but catching up quickly! This past week or so I have stitched the letters below.
I have used a lovely soft white linen cloth which I have torn (I love those frayed edges) for my backing and thread beads to stitch the letter. The thread beads ( a la Jude Hill) are my take on the 'dot' theme for one of the alphabets. The letters are all hand drawn, so not perfectly even or uniform.
I love stitching and painting... living in East Gippsland, a very beautiful part of Australia I am constantly inspired by my environment in my art/creativity. I am married and have two gorgeous grown up sons. We live on a farm with lots of cattle, horses, dogs, cats .... and beautiful native birds and animal life.
the beads work great here.ReplyDelete
