The sample in the top image came about after I flicked through the ledger in the second image yesterday. I wasn't looking for ideas, I was reminding myself of ledger exercises and I just had an urge to create a bigger piece of cloth inspired by cloth swatches I had made which are in the ledger. So here it is. It was put together by pinning, tacking and then machine stitching. I have added minimal hand embroidery....I ran out of time. This morning it occurred to me that it also lives with my bling piece, hence the inclusion of that in a few images.
See what can happen just by flicking through a ledger? Where that leads? What will I do with it? I have no idea but when you get the urge to make something you just have to go with it.
(I heat set the cloth with my doodles on yesterday and then laundered a tiny piece of it. Oops...it all washed away. Never fear, I have ordered some fine tipped blue markers...permanent ones!)
