July 1st Layers of Stitch Meeting

Well not that long before our Surface Stitchery workshop with Brenda Scarman – the fabric, a linen and cotton mix has been dyed – the photo is of the wet fabric on the line. It does look very bright as it is wet – it will dry to more muted softer shades, as can be seen in the photo of the some of the sample squares cut out ready for the workshop.
