This month Holey Moley is about lines. The above sample is just straight, machine stitched lines back and forward to make bands. Very simple but quite effective I think – I could see this used on a bookcover or bag.
For 2 weekends I’ve been doing workshops by Ken Smith who is a an amazing machine embroiderer. Made me realize I still have a very long way to go to even approach his level of skill. But I did enjoy the workshops and learnt a lot. The sample below is from the 2nd one: Holier than Thou (which could also fit in with Holey Moley) It’s not finished but I thought I’d post it to show I haven’t disappeared off the face of the earth! I’ll show the other work as it’s finished.
