I should have had it finished earlier than this but I kept adding more bits to it trying to get a certain effect.
I started with a base of very fine white mohair fibre to which I added streaks of some fine silver fibre that looks like steel wool which I picked up from the recycle table at the Embroiderers Guild.
This gave a darker shadow over the Mohair.
I ran this under the embellisher to blend the two fibres together.
Then I added strands of white knitting wool and then a layer of pale blue organza and ran it through the embellisher again.
Next I tore off the rolled hems from a pale blue silk scarfe and embellished these on top and some fine fibres of the mohair just to keep it all held together
Then I hand stitched some silver thread down but this didn't show up very well so I finally hand stitched some bugle beads on top and now I think it's finished.
This will be off to Jenny in Wales tomorrow--I do hope she likes it.
