|Beneath Our Feet Series I|
In fact, in the end, all those trials I did were really helpful in working out how to cope with the surface treatment, despite my misgivings. I hand stitched in the free-flowing way I'd used on the stitch doodle I posted at the end of January and machine stitched pretty much as planned - but perhaps not quite as formally. The stitching is shown in the detail below. The hand stitching technique was really enjoyable to do but very time-consuming on a piece 4 feet long.
If I continue with my plans and produce two more pieces in the series, I'll maybe have to come up with a faster solution. Comments were made about the economics of the situation - time spent versus likely income from any sale .... he's right of course, but fortunately this is not an issue, for me at least.
