Stitching on hand dyed fabric
Work in progress, the finish piece will be approximately 20" wide, 27" long

For a small change of pace, I pieced some hand-dyed fabric together and decided to stitch on it. After I composed the colored ground, stitching ensued...

The cotton fabric was dyed by my friend, Diana Angus, who is a generous soul and lovely woman, let me borrow her stash when I went to Crow barn in April this year.

I love connections. I met Diana at the same time I met India Flint here. Both Diana and I as well as many others (I'm sure!) want India to visit Ohio. Perhaps she will one day.

BTW (slightly incongruous to this post)...India's new book, Second Skin, will be released on July 1, 2011. You may want to pre-order a copy.


  1. Striking colours to put together, Christine, like day and night in one.

  2. Thank you for your comments. This is a new challenge for me. I'll post pic's when I've got the entire piece covered in my stitches.

  3. i saw the exquisite stitching and the cat ran away with my tongue


    thank you for the kind mention

  4. Excellent work, Christine. Congratulations!

  5. thank you all for your kind words of encouragement.

  6. beautiful!
    cant' wait for the new book

  7. Your work is growing by huge leaps! Love it.

  8. I just got back from the Surface Design Assoc. conference in Minneapolis where India was one of the featured speakers. She is an amazing person! Her integration of textiles and everyday life was so inspiring. I plan to start going on "windfall walks" around my neighborhood as soon as I get a copy of her book.


I always enjoy reading comments!
