Winter is officially over. Mother nature helped thru the winter to keep the cloths wet as I rusted the cloth.
Soo this is the last Batch for now.
The black splotches on these pieces is where I had some teabags lying on top.
And a small boudoir cushion made with rust cloth for the ruffle and the flat flowers. On a base of my own textured fabric.

Again a different style to my shabby work.
These 2 were being worked on just before the February quakes and
its time they reappeared. :)
This first one was worked on a very distressed vintage piece that I rescued.
I used a sketch of some metal flowers .
Sorry no photo of them.
This second piece was made from scratch with layers of
calico, then teabags, tulle and a strip of fabric.
Stitched with perle cotton.
Slightly bigger than an A4 page.
As per usual, I havn't
decided how to hang/display these.
Not interested in that part.
Its the stitching that rules the roost. :)
I still have the Glory Box that I had as a teen and its
filling up rapidly with my work.Plus a rolled up stack AND a vintage art folder full of embroideries and needlepoints.
My creations dont need a reason to be made. I just have to do it.
Is anyone else like this??
