another motif





The books haven't arrived yet...and I wondered whether David had hidden them this morning, knowing that once I had opened them there would be nothing done for hours! He promised me it wasn't so, and so I finished the green medallion as I watched over Raphael, and his friend in the skate park at Puy l'Eveque this afternoon. It's from the Julia Saunders book, and I like the lacy middle row. I am running out of hand dyed thread, but I still have enough red, I think, for one more.
I'm not counting the little purple thing, it was just done to use up thread on the shuttle, but I quite like it just the same!

I simply love the hand dyed threads you've been using! I'd cry if I started something larger though, like a doily and ran out of it. Do you have plans for what you're going to do with all of these motives?

I haven't a clue what to do with them, and gave one away to a colleague who admired it last week. On the whole I just leave finished pieces in a dusty pile in my bedroom, although early on I did put some pieces in frames...
That is why the challenge is such fun, it's an excuse to keep making even though there's absolutely no use for the finished objects!

I love the hand dye threads. The colors are so pretty!!! The motifs are lovely too.

You can use the motifs as ornaments in a Xmas tree or sew them all in a shirt. Mine will be "adopt" by my mom for her Xmas tree and a few t-shirts.

The colours of your hand-dyed threads are really stunning, not just this one but the ones previously as well. I like it.

Your hand-dyed threads are absolutely scrumptious (to say nothing of that wondering tatting... your clovers are just beautiful. thank you for sharing your work!!
