Work-in-Progress Wednesday

If you’ve been following along on my bamboo piece, you’ve seen these leaves in progress – all eight hours of work on them. After finishing – I hope – the stitching this Saturday, I “dissolved” the stabilizer from Superior Threads. Here it is after all the stuff washed away, before I cut apart the leaves.

It certainly hung together okay. I starting cutting apart the leaves, saving all the pieces of thread fabric to create the grasses at the bottom of the bamboo stand.

I got more and more excited as I cut, because the leaves were looking fantastic. I think I have something for the future.

There are some problems – they aren’t as stiff as I would have liked, so I am having to revise my hanging system for the bamboo. But they look great – I used some RazzleDazzle in the bobbin and got nice shiny veins. I have two shades for the leaves, as I have a front and back for the original silk leaves.

I’m trying for a close-up….(click it to see closer….)

Now i just have to put it all together…maybe it’ll be done for next week Wednesday……
