The leaves have dropped and there is definitely a chill in the air as we head into winter – not to mention the fading light. Another three weeks have passed since I last posted my progress on I the little peacock sewing etui designed by Jenny Adin-Christie. I have made a little progress – but it is little!
Last time you saw her she looked like this….
The next job was the little feathers….
The feather on the left is worked in gimp thread. Gimp is a thread formed from a central core (polyester) which is smoothly and solidly wrapped in very fine, untwisted silk thread. I like the raised effect it gives, but it was horrible to work with. Every time you plunged the threads or threaded a needle – the outer coating with unravel. The middle leaf is worked in a green a chenille thread and the final leaf in ribbon work. So that is as far as I have managed to get this time round.
Many thanks for popping in and look forward to catching up in three weeks time.
