So much to share today. I had a rare quiet afternoon as both my boys were asleep so I had a play:
It is glow-in-the-dark floss on gauze. The fabric is very see through so you can see the thread on the reverse. This means it is really easy to 'sketch' with the thread. I worked completely freehand using an illustration of a plague doctor for reference. I love the look of the loose ends. This was just an experiment and I think there is a lot of mileage in this technique. It is so fast to do and it was fun to do something looser than my usual style.
It looks ghostly and would be great hung in a window. Has anyone else tried this? What did you think?
Ok and now something completely different...
I've also been thinking a lot about my blog and how I can improve it. I'm thinking regular posts about blogs I like and about artists/inspiration online. Also maybe a monthly list/photo type post that is non embroidery related to let people get to know me, bookworm bethie does great posts about herself alongside her craft posts and I always enjoy reading them. I'm also musing about tutorials- I never use online tutorials so am wondering whether it is worth the effort of making one. I was going to do one about the different fill stitches I use but am not sure anyone would be interested. I'd really enjoy some feedback around what kind of posts people enjoy- please drop me a line or leave a comment if you have any thoughts on this.
