I then did Free Machine Embroidery around the colours to add some texture.
The wool is mohair and some of it was very curly like Shirley Temple curls(when she was little that is).
I have cut the piece up to make a needle case.
The top photo will be the front -- and the bottom one will be the back
I am going to blanket stitch around the edge and maybe put some beads on as well --but I won't be doing it today because I have been sorting out my sewing room(not again I hear you say).
The reason for the sorting this time is that I am sick of trying to be creative in a cluttered room.
How can I create what is going on in my head when I have this mess in front of me (and no I am not going to show you because I am too embarrased).
If you don't hear from me for several days you will know that I have been buried under it all.
But seriously I have to stop being a bower bird and keeping every little bit of "stuff" because I might use it one day.
This cleansing of my soul is doing me good.
