Rust Cloth finished for this winter season

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.

Happy stitching

Upcycling vintage.

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??



Happy hoarding
