What started out as a practice piece of shi sha has now turned into a proper piece that I will include in my Fabric Journal
This started with a couple of shi sha and has ended up with a circle.
This is how it goes with me, things kind of evolve with not a lot of planning.
Notice the tiny speck of blood next to the yellow one. An accidental hazard when sewing with sharp needles.
For any other sewers out there who do not know, saliva is the best blood remover and as you can see in the following photo's I managed to get most of it out.
Paisley pattern is one of my favourite patterns and after musing on what to put in the centre I decided on 3 paisley's.
I cut them out of paper and laid them on and decided that they looked good.
After marking them and stitching a line of cotton I am doing tiny chain stitches to outline each in a different colour.
What comes next?
Who knows...until my crowded brain comes up with the next step.
