Remember this piece from the start of the week? Its undergone some development and now just needs a few hand stitches before being fixed into the box frame I’ve chosen for it.
I’ve tried to capture that moment where Summer turns quietly into Autumn, the days are still bright but suddenly the colours are changing to gold and flame.
So here it is now, not the best photo – taken with iPhone as, of course, the camera battery needs recharging! Better pictures to follow!
I’ve used hand coloured fabrics and vintage lace, embellished with machine stitch and hand stitch. The Autumn leaves on the trees are seed stitch. Grasses are running stitches done in Oliver Twists varigated threads. I’ll do some proper photos before it goes into my Etsy shop – promise! And I’ll take it to the Station Steamer in Newcastle on November 6th.
