Tuesday February 16th. Sketchbook work.

Practising free machine embroidery again; this is meant to look a little like a summer flowerbed.  Pelmet grade vilene, coloured with washable fibre tip pens and Derwent Inktense blocks.  I got into a right state with my bobbin tension, hence the huge yellow stitches and the bobbin thread showing through.  Next time I’ll try to get this effect deliberately.
