This first one uses a thick wool yarn and "Pekinese "stitch.
Next I pasted some patches of scrim to the edge of the paper. I then used two shades of machine thread to stitch with "Herringbone" stitch.
In this last one I used some different hand dyed yarns to make some "French knots"then couched a meandering line between them.
I used Jan Beaney's book "Stitches,New Approaches" to find appropriate ideas. I think they are effective but there are a few problems.Namely it is difficult to make the edges double sided and unless the paper is backed with fabric it tears and comes away.
My thoughts are beginning to turn to how I will use all of this to create a final piece.I saw a lovely piece by Hilary Bower made from paper ,fabric and stitch which has set me thinking.My initial idea is still connected to seeds and maybe some sort of container but how to develop is going to exercise me for a while yet.
