I am thrilled to have this opportunity to Guest Design for this months ‘A Stitch in Time’ Challenge.
It’s no secret that I love flowers and when I saw the Cape Daisy Trio I could see that I could sit and stitch while watching TV, as I often do.
I stamped my background fabric with the negative flower image, which I did by using different coloured inks onto the stamp.
I coloured more fabric with inktense blocks before stamping the positive image. I used metallic steel and gold coloured thread to sew in the details on the stamp and then cut them out.
My original plan was to make a journal cover but I enjoyed doing this so much I made matching pencil holder from an old coffee tin. It will remain on my balcony so that if I get any ideas while I am reading out there I have them to hand!
I made this little stitched picture using Debs Smith new smaller Feather, inked onto a painted piece of calico. and stitched onto a piece of black fabric. Lots of mark making in the background, and glued onto a small canvas board.
