Creating in Greens

It has taken me a while to get back in my groove again. Not all my fabrics and buttons are available yet.

The first box that I began working with last week had mainly green fabrics in it, hence the green theme.

This morning I got up with LOTS of creative energy looked at the fabrics, shapes and sizes and accordingly decided to create 2 things.

There were lots of narrow strips in the mix so what I chose to make were a fabric scarf and a textured landscape.

I wanted to make a lighter narrower scarf that could serve as a necklace, hairband or a belt as well.

I laid the strips down on the table and chose randomly from the piles, and stitched them onto a piece of narrow green sheeting.

I am using up all the threads that I have before buying more, making do with what I have. So I took all the greens out including the bobbins that had green thread and threaded the machine.

Randomly stitched the strips down chamging the threads as they finished using colors as they came, in no particular order.

I just wanted something VERY green today. To complement my ring.

I am very happy with the result. It will rag more after being washed and that is the look that I want. Prairie - rustic.
