Colours and textures differ from one person to another and we all see different things in nature, colour and textiles. Some of us like bold and beautiful and others of us like more subtle fabric designs ( which is probably my category) Although I am in love with reds as well. I also love to wear red especially in the colder months as it brings a warmth to me.
who collect and stitch, this just brings more into the mix. We love timeworn or pre-owned because it has a little story and battle scares that we will incorporate into our design. Patchwork pieces that still have bits of paper inside them ( on English paper piecing)
bought from a very experienced and trusted lady who knows her fabric and dates. This piece is very very delicate and not really holding together so I am going to unpick and add it. I am reliably informed it is late 17th Century so that is what I am going to stitch on the finished piece when I get round to it.
lots of ways and ideas ...
