making fabric…

Several years ago I bought a book entitled Glorious Inspiration by Kaffe Fassett.  He wrote it for needlepoint and knitting but I feel some images interpret quite nicely in thread.   This image is taken from a section of Marcello Provenzale’s Landscape with Birds in the Pitti Palace in Florence.  I am really pleased with the texture of the thread.  It looks like old cloth!  Imagine!  Not your typical warp/weft weaving method…

The image size is 6.75″ x 5.5″ and is done in cotton threads over a wash away stabilizer.  All that remains is the cotton thread.

    It does like old fabric, perhaps a brocade. Whatever it looks like, it’s gorgeous.
