Lavender :: Line

Starting something new is exciting. I am using the iris squares/circles.

They belong together. The gray base fabric is lightly painted - going along with the watercolor effect of the dyed squares.

I am experimenting with a solid hand-stitched line. I like that it looks like drawing - drawing with thread.

Looking for ways to hold everything together.

Results of the cotton with oak leaves inside wrapped around a bottle. Deepest result where front side of leaf was in contact with the fabric, but also interesting that the other side acted as a resist. I really like the browns created.
