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...
oh yum lynne... this is so cool, love the rich colors, and the running stich... AND Judes work too...ReplyDelete
i love these ... i cannot wait to start stitching again..soon.ReplyDelete
It is so much fun to see what you are up to!ReplyDelete
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!!!ReplyDelete
Sending you much love and many hugs this holiday season, dear Lynne. I hope you make many happy memories.
I'm wild about your stitchery pieces. Perfect imperfection. Random and tactile. They speak to me.ReplyDelete
Loving the stitching - loving the paintings.. just looked at your tutorial on muslin journal pages! Thanks for sharing. I have added your blog to my favourites...ReplyDelete
It must be the time of year to be stitching.ReplyDelete
Your is wonderful. What will you do with them?
I was just thinking of your stichings on the morning walk today. So glad to get to have a look as these. Love the idea of using your paint rag muslins.ReplyDelete
it's so peaceful to stitch...ReplyDelete

I'm a new visitor to your blog and it was lovely to see your beautiful silk textiles today. I love bright sari fabrics too!ReplyDelete
I will surely visit here again and I will now follow you!
Many blessings for Christmas!
Jo May. :-)
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!! :)ReplyDelete
oh Lynne, these pieces are more beautiful than ever! roxanneReplyDelete
