Autumn Colours 

  
It’s been good to get back to some stitching this week. Been busy with family things like sick bugs and birthdays! 

A new small piece I’m working on, it’s inspired by a sketch of the Northumbrian landscape. It’s changing as I work on it though. As I cycled through the parks this morning I got inspired by the beautiful autumn colours so I’m going to add leaves in those golden green shades to the trees on the ridge. 

I’ve layered up the background and now I’m working in the details. The clouds are needle felted and stitched, still love that effect. The fields are appliqué with hand dyed fabrics. I’ll add texture with stitch and paint. I’ve got a few of these rustic box frames to use. I think they compliment the raw edges of torn fabric, so I’m going to leave the edges unfinished. I’ll post another picture when I’m done.

Look out for it at the Station Steamer on November 6th! I’ll have some new badges ready by then as well.
