Samples 2016: Week 24, Sunburst/Spices
Spicy? More than it looks in the photo! It's really yellow, rust and deep red.
I machine stitched 3 layers of fabric then cut back sections to reveal the different colours. Then more stitch, some worked from the back with thicker thread on the bobbin and some allowing a contrasting bobbin thread to peep through on top.
A teasel brush roughed up the fabric edges nicely, then I finished it with a teeny bronze sequin over the mess of stitch in the centre.
