A dye painting session with the Fiber Junkies last fall yielded numerous pieces which intrigued me.Clearly I have no drawing skills, but I hoped the wonderful colors would lead to a satisfactory finished product.
With a thin cotton batting on the reverse side, I decided to explore some of the built in Janome 8900 stitches.....starting with the mountain area.
After a lot of experimenting on scraps of fabric, I pretty much stuck to a single applique stitch. The threads were all Sulky Rayon, some variegated, some not.
This mercerized white cotton was a second.....with a flaw. Well, it wasn't a flaw to me...it was a design opportunity!
My plan was to feature one very large pine tree to cover it up.......but that's not how it ended up. You know how that goes, don't you??
