Thanks guys. It was a fun one for mine - the concept I came up with a few weeks back, but had intended a slightly different outcome. When I saw all the pretty threads on the floor (I am a very messy crafter), they looked so great together, it just happened.
Wulf: I totally winged it!! Placed the fabric pieces on the base then kinda dropped the threads on, held as much as I could until some was stitched down and then whizzed the machine over the rest, cutting threads as they got caught up in the machine foot. No basting, more of a hope for the best.
I found out afterwards
, that I could have used some water soluble fabric to hold it all in place - but where's the fun in that!!!
This has definitely been an enjoyable swap for me and I am loving all the beauties in the gallery.
