moon stitch

moon stitch commencesChanged my mind about using the sewing machine weight Aurifil for hand stitch when i dropped this hand dyed silk thread near the piece—it’s got a slight variegation going on and being a perle type adds more dimension and glisten. It’s slightly thicker than the original stitch plan, but not enough to lose the details.

I’m still surprised and pleased when stitch is added to a fabric, making it come alive.

    Oh…! I really like the texture you’ve created with that thread. The colour lets the fabric come through the texture without distraction. Lovely!
