This week I attended a workshop at the Home Patch with Lisa Maddock of Forage. The class was excellent. We learnt how to draw inspiration from boro, sashiko, and kantha. We used a variety f repurposed and vintage fabric with some of our own stash and mixed them together to create a background, then added an embellishment if naive stitches to create our own piece.
I stayed up till 1am the night of the class and didnt want to go to bed, I just wanted to keep stitching'..
Im really loving this technique all done by hand...my absolute favourite....
the following pis are of some of Lisas work...this first one is stunning..this one is next on my list/...loving the liberty flowers!!!
Lisa calls this one the Botanicals
A few ladies in the class did these pairs...soo cute..
