Stitching & Dye-ing

Using the fabric that I've dyed during the textile course I've been attending, I decided to sew rows of stitches....sashiko-style.....The blue/pink fabric is dyed using procion dye; the stitches are sewn using sashiko thread; and overlayed this, is a length of organzie I'd embellished with machine stitch, more than 12 months ago.
I'm making a collage of fabrics onto which I'm stitching rows, and overlaying these, with the embellished organzie.
The top photo shows the layers; the bottom photo shows the fabric in the process of being stitched.
The starting point of all this was seeing photos taken from the air, of features in landscapes which are invisible from the ground. Air photography has changed the way that archaeologists have looked at the landscape. They show us hidden forms.


  1. aerial photos are wonderful at revealing what we cannot see at ground level. It's like we're walking through a landscape we can't completely see.
