More Couching

Here is the start of the new module – Applique.

Design tacked onto silk

Applique inspired by Baldishol Tapestry

Not a lot to show as yet, apart from the design and a few appliquéd pieces but I somehow think that this will keep me out of mischief for a wee while! The inspiration is the Norwegian Baldishol Tapestry - thought to date from about the same era as the more well known (in England!) Bayeux tapestry. Sadly only remnants remain in The Oslo Museum of Applied Art.

I am also back on the voluntary work – repairing the church furnishings. A pulpit fall that was used over Advent was noticed to be a little bit in need of repair.

Previous repair work and loose threads

Loose threads where couching decayed
