Stitching and the use of stashed fabrics have been occupying my creative thoughts over the last few weeks.
The yellow, hand dyed muslin has been waiting for many years. I this is my favourite type of yellow – it just has a touch of green-ness and is ‘oh so cool’.
I wouldn’t have normally teamed it with the natural hued linen, but it’s working for me today so I’m running with it.
I stitch in the lounge room and this is today’s ‘pile of mess’ which has accumulated on the little side table next to me.
Phone, scraps of thread and fabric, little scissors, glass of water, a book that needs to go back on the shelf, a little zippered bag where I keep my embroidery bits and bobs and water soluble texta.
When Jasper isn’t feeding or sleeping (or being smothered in cuddles and kisses by moi), he’s usually rolling around on a quilt or two at my feet.
