Here’s a few more pages that have just been painted
We also made a color chart with the Procion MX dyes as you can see on the right hand page.
The page on the left is the back side of the page that I already showed in previous posts. The front of that page is black with red chain stitch. The right page is couched yarns.
Here’s the back of the couched yarn page on the left. I threaded another novelty yarn through the stitching on the back. It was quite painful to do due to the thickness of the novelty yarn. The partial page on the right was cut down and then stitched with button hole stitch around the edge. This was then covered with raised chain band stitch. The small dark edge is more button hole stitch done with a thinner thread.
Here’s the back of the button hole page and then on the right is feather stitch.
The back of the feather stitch on the left and then back stitch with various lacing options.
The left is the reverse side of the back stitch and on the right is another page of fly stitch. Looks very different from the circular variety above.
The back of the fly stitch is on the left and the chevron stitch is on the right.
I did a lacing of the back of the chevron stitch so it looks very similar to the front side. The right is just painted with no stitching.
More painted pages.
The page on the right has herringbone stitch. I still have to do a “knotted” page for homework. I think I will be using one of the black/grey backgrounds with some of my orange hand dyed threads to resemble a lichen photo that I have. There are still 8 pages that are blank so if you have a suggestion for a stitch that I haven’t done and would work well through punched holes, let me know.
