TAST and NFC

Not much to show, but at least 2 pieces for the challenges are done.
This one is for TAST week 6. The Eyelet stitch. It is done with various yarns and threads on a piece of an old blouse. Really like the colours and this stitch was a lot of fun to do.


And this is a piece for the NFC. Theme is "Spice" and I used some new materials I never used with the embellisher before. The base is an old piece of curtain in "spicy" colours. Then I layered 2 different sorts of thread on it. The were partly metallic, which gives a nice effect. On top are 2 layers of orange organza and then I very heavily punched all layers together. It´s almost postcard size and I think I will use it for the next TAST piece with Feather Stitch.

I love the colours used for the eyelet stitch piece - they all blend so beautifully, it looks like a bunch of summer flowers.
