Done and dusted – unless I decide to quilt it and make it into a dolly quilt.
I don’t have to quilt it but it would make a useful little mat to put under the fruit bowl. I managed to complete another sample too; hand-stitched reverse applique. I quite like the stepped appearance and it certainly highlights the centre. It would be a good way to mount any hand work and this little piece of Botanique from Joel Dewsbury almost looks like embroidery.
I really must concentrate on the main assessment piece now – a wall hanging. Here are a few pages from my sketch book mostly worked from photos I took in Australia.
I made a printing block of a simple leaf shape and roughly painted it to print these
Next I will try it on fabric.
I have sketched a few possible designs but that is for another day, now it is time to link up to slow Sunday Stitching here
