Work in Progress. A good occupation for a cloudy, sometimes rainy, Saturday.
I cut the pieces of old linen before I dyed them because I wanted the edges to get some colour, too. Then I stitched them down on a heavy background fabric, another old piece of very fine Japanese wool fabric, so fine that it feels almost like cotton. There's a LOT of stitching to be done and some embroidery and applique.
