this week i continued with my free embroidery on woven fabric pieces...
i trace the shapes freehand with a self-eliminating pen, just to have a certain Feeling for the space while stitching. i love doing this when watching tv etc...
so meanwhile i have finished three of these pieces -
my "work in Progress" wall is filling up...
i finally got some onion skins from a friend (People always forget to save them for me, because this is such an ordinary thing... and i can´t collect some myself, as because of my colitis this vegetable is not part of my eating habits)
so i boiled some onion skins and added a piece of a white bed sheet,
let it soak for some hours and hang it outside to dry.
i love the mottled look (actually intended it).
added some vinegar to hopefully fix the Color (was suggested on some Websites i investigated; they also say, onion is not very stable to light over longer time - will see...)
i will iron the Piece and then rip a stripe of it apart and wash one Piece only, to compare how much the color will loosen.
i also put one of my sunprints into the leftover brew -
makes a good sun or moon i think.
now that the season brings colder temperatures, i drink some tea during the day.
i´m sure you also bought some already just because of its look;)
