after a busy couple of weeks, i took a few days “off” to work on something new i’ve been wanting to get to for ages.
since march, in fact. when my sister, little black heart, had given me a new drawing to embroider.
i’d also been hoarding some beautiful hand dyed silks that caroline rose art had given me a couple of years ago, that i’d been saving for “something special”.
it may’ve taken me
years months to get started on this, but once i did, i let my obsessive nature take over and spent all weekend sewing *bliss*
(embroidered canvas available here )
it’s been lovely working with silk for a change – it’s given the zombies dresses a gorgeous sheen – and i love the subtle variations in colour of caroline’s hand dyed fabric.
( 5 x 5″ canvas SOLD here )
the colour palette of the fabrics is quite muted, so for a change i used grey cotton to embroider the detail – i think it’s given them a lovely corpse-like pallor :)
(similar 5″ embroidered hoop available here)
and i enjoyed having a tinker with various sizes, formats & colour combinations
so to say thankyou to my loyal customers and facebook likerers, i made this fancy zombie in a hoop just for you.
well, for one of you.
