FMQ Challenge October - Piece #2
I have been having fun!
Trying out lots of threads on this piece which I started last night and have just finished today.
Its been raining here today so there wasn't a lot of light for the photo!
My play piece is about 8" x 4"
The first thread I used was Rainbow thread by Superior
threads which I did my name with and a Nautilus shell. I really don't like multi coloured threads - but I tried them out anyway.
The light brown larger feathers are sewn with Aurifil 40...I changed needles up and down as required...and played with tensions.
The yellow centre of the feathers is a yellow Sulky 40 plus circles too.
Bouncing Bananas - pink Mettler Polythene 40
Blue is embroidery polyester ? weight
Bright green is embroidery polyester ? weight
Red feather is YLI silk 100
Pink Shells are Gutterman 100% polyester ? weight
Mauve at the bottom is Sylko fast dye by Dewhurst - an old reel of thread on an original wooden reel.
OK - Thats it I think. Broke one needle as I pulled the thread as it was going down - a nasty habit I have. You would think I would remember by now.
Well I think thats it for a bit .
I really enjoyed this and it was nice to be sewing for a bit.
Would you believe - the sun just came out!!!
