This week is sadly the last Summer of color week,
The final colour selection is the very summery.
|Raspberry/tangerine and lemon|
I decided to do a fruity collage piece.
Once I had collaged and painted the design I covered it in pieces of orange and cream organza and machine embroidered through, emphasising the scratchy lines.I wanted to trap the segments behind a membrane just like real orange segments.
I wasn't too precious about the lines as I wanted them to be wild and free.
I have recently returned from a little trip to York to visit my Daughter. For those knitters amongst you I thought you might be interested in this wonderful window display on circular knitting!( I have never heard of circular knitting but this book they were advertising seemed to show all the techniques)
I couldn't resist adding it to my post as it is in the SOC colours .....
The shop is called Knit and stitch and they have lots of great looking workshops which I will have to check out for next time I visit.
Linking to the final Summer of color.
Many thanks to the wonderful Kristin for yet again making the whole event possible.
