Samples 2016: Week 1, Crackle/Sweet peas

My first random pairing suggests “crackle” pattern/style, in “sweet peas” colours. Doesn’t seem a natural combination, does it? But it’s only a starting point, I’ll do what I fancy with materials I’ve already got.

So I chose to hand stitch a pattern like the crackle you see in ceramic glaze or paint effects. Instead of fabric I used paper, for crispness. The closest thread I could find with sweet pea-ish shades  of white, pink and purple was an Anchor pearl cotton.

Wow, really love this, good choice. Actually would make a really good background.
