New hand dyed tissue silk scarves in Venice colourway.
I had trees on the brain. I sketched an outline, cut a paper template and very roughly cut out the tree from the vintage blanketing in the pack.
Using pieces of hand dyed fabrics, I began stitching on my patches. The top of the tree is vintage kimono silk.
I decided that I liked the bush area only randomly covered in stab stitch so I left some areas free. Close up of the variations in colour using the silk yarn from the pack.
I use washi tape to hold the buttons from the pack in place as I stitch them down.
Not finished yet. have a look back after the weekend and the diorama should be finished. Then I start stitching the brooch I have in mind from more pieces out of the Venice pack. I love this colourway! Pack available from The Thread Studio- but only 20 of them going on sale.
