Samples 2015: Week 52, Train in China

Background of layered blue chiffon and hand dyed green muslin bonded to pale blue polycotton using MistyFuse. The train is a strip of Evolon. Then tacked to white felt for easy hand stitching. My favourite French knots, plus a little blanket and straight stitch. (About 7 x 9cm.)

From this article in the Saturday Guardian 26/12/15:
“China's 'train hunter' on a quest to chronicle its fast-expanding railways. Wang Wei has spent 10 years travelling all over China to photograph trains and new lines, but can he keep up with the incredible pace of the country’s rail boom?”

Loved the brilliant flowers against the subtle blue shades of the mountains. And that would’ve been it, if I hadn’t had a time to kill over the holidays – in the end a bit of train came in too!
