Playing with Zigzags

So my second sample piece for chapter four is now finished. Here it is.I think this might be my favourite piece of stitching for the course so far. I used the cheaper rayon threads that I got from ebay last week and they have been running through my machine so far. I've not had any drama with tangles and breaks which is what I feared might happen buying unbranded.

I love how bright and vibrant the colours look against the black felt background. I also like the look of the piece in the first picture where I've attached it in the sketchbook. All those threads ends look like tassels to me. It looks like a little magic carpet, I wonder if it will whisk me away to somewhere exotic if I step on?

  1. I'm very impressed! I find stitching in straight lines very difficult!
