THREAD SKETCHING

I visited my good friend Nancy today, she's just come back from Bali again (she goes a couple of times a year). Nancy always buys up big on batik fabrics and today I asked her if she had any spare scraps, of course she said yes, she's such a generous soul. Her scraps got me quite inspired and as soon as I came home I started ironing and cutting.

So a bit of the above pile became this.....

and then became this...... Click on the photo for a better look at the stitching.

here is the back, the backing is a wool blend felt.

the next step should happen this weekend, I'll be watching Avatar tonight, I hope I like it.
