Soon, there will be 'no more twist' (Beatrix Potter, The Tailor of Gloucester) in this stunning vintage magenta. I will feel sadness when the last strand is stitched - it is inherently beautiful on it's reel, unrolling, unfurling with energy! On researching the making of buttonholes, I decided to run some through wax before stitching, which makes it more controlled for a tailored buttonhole.. though that isn't all I stitched in little samples with it - as you will, perhaps, see - if you come to our exhibition - SIT SELECT 2013
Sketchbook sample - 3 in a row - all unfinished with one unravelled!
This morning's stitching...
Images and audio will be presented at Suited, alongside the sketchbook work
