Be....weave it or not!



I'm playing around with yet another weaving thanks to my decidedly competitive nature (thanks K!!) and an excess amount of fabric. This time I used a square of upholstry fabric and some of my acrylic painted cotton. The commercial fabric was shredding like crazy, so I tacked it down (embellished would be a kinder term) with a mix of hand and free motion machine stitching. Of course, the piece is a little too matchy, matchy and blendy for my taste, so another layer of mystery fibre will be attached this weekend. Guess what I'll do to it after that? Keep tuned!

You're right -- too blendy. But it would make a terrific base or background for something. Maybe some bright fibers...some beads....hmmmm....

just needs a bit of Zing, a bit of *deadly* as we would say here. naturally you'll add beads, couldn't help yourself...k.

No guesses from this end, but admiration for the piece so far. Looking forward to see what you do next!

That's right, Amri, I am just sitting at my computer, waiting for you to write up something, put up some pictures, and publish up your post, so I can comment on it.

We're waiting...
