Stitching experiments

I’ve recently been taking an online course where we experiment on trying different embroidery stitches, with a view to using them as embellishments on my quilted works. While I haven’t kept up with the weekly lessons (!) I’m plodding away. I started with a piece of my own hand-dyed fabric and then using different threads- colours and weights- just did some free-form stitches all over in an organic design.
I love bright colours and lots of them. The photos show the progress so far.
