Samples 2015: Week 32, Railways

Hand dyed wool-viscose felt backed with pelmet Vilene. Free machined lines in silver grey echoed in black, plus a few French knots in stranded cotton.

"Andy Burnham’s right: railway unity would get Britain back on track. The Labour leadership contender’s commitment to renationalising our railways is welcome, but hardly radical.”

I liked the curves here, but what a lot going on! I settled for simple free lines to capture the essence of all that movement. To jazz it up a bit I added the paired lights as amber French knots.

Absolutely love this - the simplicity of those paired lights just make so much sense and bring it completely to life.
