Background details painted with dyes sewn and finished…now to the rest!

I have been progressing with my work for our local Embroiderer’s Guild Project that will be exhibited within the beautiful National Trust Bodnant Garden at the end of August and start of September. I am working on a massive 8 ft long sheet that will be hung inside the Pin mill, using my usual technique of painting with thickened Procion MX dyes and adding extra stitching for emphasis. I have found it easier to use smaller pieces of cotton sheet to actually paint on before cutting out the foxgloves and sewing them to the main sheet with the Pin Mill on.

Watch this space for further development….only have 3 weeks to get it all done!!
