Detail of Persephone's Rug for the Underworld
This is a detail of the stitching I have been doing on Persephone's Rug for the Underworld. Lately I have been doing a lot of double stitching or quilting to get more of a line.I like to use threads that show up as I think if I am going to do that amount of stitching I may as well see it! I also like to use rayon machien embroidery threads- that have that bit of extra sheen which at a distance makes the fabric seem almost velvet. I don't normally work on a couple of pieces at a time but as I am scrambling to get as much done as I can before I go to Europe next week, I have a couple of pieces on the go.
Today was another 10,000 dedicated walking step day.It really is starting to become a habit!
