stitching


i've been stitching on pieces of muslin that i've used for cleaning paint brushes and blending stumps... washed them and then soaked them in walnut ink water before i started stitching. i've got quite a stack of them, and i don't know what i'm gonna do with them once they're done...


i bought this book last week at barnes and noble. wow. what a fantastic book... i've never given making silk flowers a second thought, but the idea of making them from recycled sari silk totally sends me!


i'm also waiting for jude to make the 'cloth to cloth' videos available. soon, i think...

  4. Ha! We are on the same track! I have stacks of washed and ironed muslin covered with paint from cleaning my brushes, too, just waiting patiently for me to embellish them. I LOVE what you are doing - and isn't Jude fabulous!!!

    Sending you much love and many hugs this holiday season, dear Lynne. I hope you make many happy memories.

  5. I'm wild about your stitchery pieces. Perfect imperfection. Random and tactile. They speak to me.

  11. These pieces are so lovely and inspiring. For someone who doesn't sew except for replacing buttons or mending a pocket or hem, these beautiful stitches on muslin are proof that one can find satisfaction in any size and material if one's heart is in it. Thank you so much!! :)
