I can't make up my mind.

I am always amazed at the different effects created by my wonderful machine. These 2 photographs are of the same piece of work. The top shows the back of the work

and the next one shows the front, both scanned at the same point of working.

The lower scan shows all the threads that I have laid down and then embellished. The back is grey felt, there is none visible in either picture. I think I am drawn to the more sublte upper picture, but then .............!

Which one do you prefer?

Just a sample

This is just to whet your appetites! It is a small sample of Nuvo Felt, just waiting to be further embellished with stitching. I'm a bit disappointed with the depth of colour in the picture, if I can improve it I will replace it at a later date.

The Embellisher

My life as a textile artist changed completely when I discovered this machine. Hopefully you too will enjoy the journey as I discover still more things to do on the machine.
