Hand Stitching

Colour Project – Yellow, Part 2


After machine stitching so much of black, it is a nice change to do some hand stitching.




These simple running stitch pieces help me get an idea of how the fabrics and threads work together.

These pieces start me pondering the dilemma – What are my rules for this colour project? Does yellow month mean I can only use yellow? Can I introduce other colours? And the most challenging – where does yellow begin and end…when is it orange…or cream?
