Floating on a cloud
Peaceful, gentle breeze
This week's project is one that enabled me to enjoy the gentle art of hand stitching. Everything here was done with a hand needle, a spool of thread and a bit of heavier pearl cotton thread.
Also, my color muse was on vacation and I only used white muslin. This was a stretch but I do like the result.
I had the opportunity to play with yo-yos, different sizes, shapes and applications. Some were appliqued around the edge, and some were attached just at the center.
To make a yo-yo, a row of hand stitching is done on the edge of the circle.
The thread is pulled to gather.
The yo-yo is complete with the gathering centered.
The fun begins as you change where the gathering is located.
As these off-centered yo-yos are placed, the fabric starts to balloon. Therefore, the large ones were furrowed, a method where the ballooning fabric is tacked to make a lovely, textured surface.
