Yet another work in progress

Recently on some online site I saw an idea for another style of wall hanging embracing fancy fabrics and machine embroidery, so I delved in my many tubs of “fancy” fabrics and chose a selection varying from ivory duchesse satin through to a chocolate brown silk from a sari , and featuring gold patterned motifs.

Once I had auditioned and arranged the fabrics in a fairly pleasing formation they were stitched to a stabilising fabric , and then the fun began!

I have planned on using a Hemingway COPPER thread and an ecru Rayon thread by Marathon.

Early on and after I had added both the copper flower on the right, and an ecru spray upper middle, I started having problems.Every few seconds the machine was instructing me to “re thread needle or check bobbin”

Did I tell you that I am still on my “L” plates?

Adding some tear-away stabiliser solved the problem and some more stitching was      then successfully managed. It’s time to prepare dinner.

Hopefully this piece will be completed very shortly
