I finished couching down the yarn on to the felt applique piece I have been working on.
Here’s the completed piece wrapped around matte board. I didn’t lace it on yet, just taped it on the back so I could see how I liked it. I think it would look better with a border but I will have to find the right piece of fabric for it.
Here area couple of close ups of the couched down yarn. I haven’t come up with any name for this piece yet. Any suggestions?
It turned out great, a lot of motion, texture and dimension!
Nice piece Ruth and I agree with Marilyn about the “motion” as that was my first thought….the second was Catherine Wheels.
Thanks Karen, I will add motion to my list of words when I am working out a title.
Motion most definitely! I was reminded of the intricate workings in a clock (cog wheels). It’s a lovely piece Ruth but title? …. sorry, no idea.
Thanks Lyn. Maybe I could use something with time in the title?
It’s beautiful Ruth.
Re name….flowers & foliage, seasonal, circles of time, natural cycle….that’s all that comes to mind at the mo.
Let us all know what you decide please.
Thanks Antje, out of those suggestions, I like ‘Circles of Time’ best. I am still deciding on how to finish so I will show it again when that’s finished.
