Arabian Nights 2
This a section from Arabian Night 2 (you can see Arabian Nights 1 on my other embellisher blog). As with the other piece, I have carded and blended our new merino wool - Arabian Nights and embellished it onto hand dyed scrim. Cut it into pieces and emebllished it onto handy dyed wool felt. Using the matching thick silk I have worked running stitch over everything and sprinkled gold flakes and layered several layers of chiffon scarves over the top. Zapped it with a heat gun and appliqued 2 more shapes on the top and running stitch some more. The full versions of these two pieces will be in the book.
Now I am working on a third piece so I can try out the TAST stitch for this week on the top. After the rugby (and by the way the Force won in South Africa 22-3 so they will be happy). I hopefully will have time to load my TAST for this week.
Dorothy's snow must have paid off as it is cooler and may even rain....
