Neutral

Trying my best to embrace the neutral. Here's a little before and after stitching.

Crazy, right? This is why I love my medium. Stitching can transform the design.

I am also trying out a different kind of edge finish.

Then I had this idea that I wanted to fiddle with, involving a pattern cut from white fabric and laid over a scrappy background.

 

 

Slightly inspired by Moorish design.

One of these days I need to get an idea for the real neutral piece.

We are off to Montana tomorrow to visit family. Looking forward to some beautiful fall scenery.

  2. I like the last one very much! Isn't it fun to just sit and delicately cut away the spaces between the lines? I have been doing some work where I cut away the lines from the spaces and fuse it back together like a jigsaw on a dark background.
    I am saving the cut out lines. They might be important at some point!

  4. The stitching certainly has transformed the first piece and I really like the way that the placement of the pattern allows the background to glow through the central star shape.
