WOW...amazing. do you see the face in the fabric? 2 light colored eyes, a mouth and a scraggly beard.
deanna...these great results alsopresent dilemma: how can i stitchOVER this cloth...oh, eee. well,always something to challenge iguess. maybe they will just bebackings? but then, maybe likesmall maps of Territory? scrapsonly here and there? but this one, this one makes mewant to WEAVE IT.
weaving it is a great idea. you could also cut it into strips (leaving the design in place)and put strips of a contrasting fabric in between, then just enhance the pattern on the fabric with stitches. ---just an idea---
Oh I know the dilemma - how can it be stitched over! On another note- I can't WAIT until Jude is back - I soooo badly want to post a photo of what I have been doing. Influenced by something you wrote awhile ago along the lines of 'it feels sooooo good' and Jude commenting on the feel of old cloth - well I have had a breakthrough and made something that feels sooooo good! Peace, Gillian
that was a good idea grace, i'll try it with muslin, leaves and a few copper coins just for fun.
