Day 8 – A Year of Stitches 2017

Quick Update

 

Since this blog is a work in progress, things may change.  Right now I will try to post daily updates with stitch and thread information and any additional comments.  Today was a nice quiet day after spending the morning at church, going out to lunch with the family before the oldest returned to Tucson, AZ for college and smelling the fresh baked brownies made for the plane flight.  (Hopefully less eventful then the 5 cancelled flights dealt with coming home for Christmas!)

I decided to outline the day and night scenes before I get carried away filling the fabric.  So I dug into my jewelry making supplies for the fairy silk and pulled out some colors from my stash.

 

Day 8:

Stitch:  Couching

Fiber:  Foundation or laid thread:  fairy silk in a dusty purple, Couching thread:  Weeks Dye Works hand dyed cotton floss in Marigold and Mulberry, using 2 ply
