TEXTURE AND SURFACE.
I've been working on creating a new surface to use as a background for some embroideries that are whizzing about in my tiny little noggin.



I am loving the fact I know where each and every piece of textile I used comes from.



Taking a pile of odd and disparate histories and re weaving them in to something new.



I have been doing a lot of work with my students about distressing fabrics and making them look worn. 



It was fun to be able to put some of this in to practice in the work room.



I spent a happy time with the cheese grater on this little lot.

  5. The cheese grater sounds a vicious weapon to use on such delicate fabrics, but the result is a mass of wonderful texture - lovely.
