I'm always fond of
funky colour combinations
(at least I know not everybody loves
my sometimes bold choices)
So making these small
(10 x 10 cm or 4 x 4")
embroidered pieces as extra TAST works
gives me the opportunity
to try out different things.
In the sun the purple looks a bit more reddish
than it really is
Some hand dyed fabric (and some from the shop)
and a little piece of silk
made a lovely base to start on
I couched some thick silk yarn along the round cut
of some of the snippets.
Added more purple but also blue, turquoise
and some red wool.
(the colours on that second picture are in fact best)
(love the feel of the spider stitches)
