Just finished the 1st panel for Muse 2 - I want this to be more tonal and subtle to allow the rusted fabric to show more. The stitching is also going to be little more free and open -no solid blocks.
Close up.There will be a cord outline between the design areas.
As I have not got my old Bernina sewing machine back from the repairers - he has had it for a whole year now!! and my Pfaff does not like rusted fabric I have been lucky enough to be using Val Campbell-Harding's machine, loaned to me by Jane Lemon. (It works beautifully). So yesterday on my way home from Jane Lemon's, where the other Jane and I have been working recently, I decided to pass by and pay my respects to Val. She is still very much missed. I do remember her constantly as I have a lovely photo of her in my studio, watching over my work!
