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?
Hopefully this piece will be completed very shortly
