The Beginning of the Piece

You can see I have traced out the pattern onto a piece of white vintage linen and now I a beginning to stitch. I have used a number of pieces of made "fabric" from chocolate papers or foil coffee packets overlaid with textured yarn and organza and free machine stitched. The plain piece in the middle is a teabag - I might have to paint that with gel medium to give it a bit more strength and I have begun to do some stitching. I decided to work in earth colours in a fairly monochromatic palette. We will see where this goes over the next little while. It is a good project to work on in front of TV at night.
