A fun weekend

I had a great weekend stitching for me. Not for an exhibition or teaching sample but just for fun and for me. I have half made a wrap to wear over jeans or a skirt. Its from a Amy Butler pattern which I just love, all my skirts are from the same pattern. As you can see the design is from the Golden Orb Web Spider that is living with us at the moment. I used lines of machine stitched metallic thread for the web, needle turn applique for the spider and the letters my sewing machine sews to make the label. I wanted the label to look like a printed tag on a specimen in a museum.
