New stitching

I am currently in love with sari ribbon - the colours and the project possibilities. A couple of weeks ago, Katherine visited and showed me what she had been working on. It prompted me to do some gathering. The lovely muted sari ribbons and the book are from The Thread Studio - the stitched sample is by Katherine - and the article from Jude Hill about weaving a cloth base appears in this Quilting Arts Magazine (online extras here) I wove the sari ribbons with some other pieces of silk and cotton and tacked them to a supporting cloth of cotton. Then I "had to" purchase some new threads to matchand started to stitch This book (another birthday gift!) is going to be a wonderful resource for more creative stitching ideas. Be inspired by Jude Hill's posts about stitching and her hearts -- I LOVE hearts and spirals, and if I think I can find the time I will definitely do her Whispering Hearts online class.
Linda Vincent's lovely spirit cloth pieces have also been very inspirational to me (I will be moving to more colourful pieces after this one is complete)
And I thought you might like a close-up of Katherine's finished piece - turned into a book cover for her mother
