More Thread Painting
I sat down today and did some experimenting with some heavier threads. I have never used the 100% cotton threads and was nervous about thread breakage. But I put in my metallic needle and had great success.
This piece is about 10 x 10, and I just wanted to get more practice. You can see in the outline of the butterfly, I did some bobbin work. I wound some embroidery floss around the bobbin, turned the project upside down, and outlined the butterfly.
I am enjoying the thread painting and plan to use it on my next art quilt.
