The little silk piece from the other week has been calling out to me. I am just loving the feel of the smooth silk at the moment and all I want to do is create smooth, shiny little stitches. Colour in with thread. There is something about 'blank fabric' that does not always appeal, so I decided to fill the entire back ground as well. Tiny little running stitches, in neat little rows and using the grain of the fabric as a guide. Getting into a rhythm it was rather meditative.
Plump satin stitch seed completed the fruit. Almost good enough to eat.
At only 6cm (2 1/4") in diameter it would make a lovely brooch, pot lid or paperweight. I have another use in store and just need to get out the glue...
