Couching


Here is an extension of the coloured stitches work... using couching. Here I used embroidery floss, sewing thread, wool and roving. I particularly like the blue 'mess' in the top right, here layers of blue sewing thread have been couched using red thread. I think it creates an atomic cloud type effect! The red roving looks great couched, so wispy and delicate. Please excuse my camera phone pictures / poor photography skills!
