My Givaway

This one is done on a Bali hand dye. It's a very odd colour. In the energy saving bulbs in my sewing room it appears very green, in my sitting room with normal light bulbs it's a red brown and in daylight, half way between the two.The thread is a baby blue Madeira Polyneon.

I will draw names out of a hat (or some other random method) from everyone who leaves a comment on this post by Monday evening in the UK.
I've been asked what threads were used yesterday and they were all YLI Ultrasheen. The threads used on the red fabric were a pale leaf green and an emerald green and on the bright teal fabric, a deep rose and a bright red (these colours look totally different away from the fabrics they are stitched on to).
It will be left unfinished for you to do with as it your want.

  1. Sally, that feather is gorgeous. Complete in itself, and the colours are fascinating. I'd love to win it, so please put my name in the hat ... or other random method. Margery.

  2. This is so lovely - how can you bear to let it go? I loved the effects of the threads you used on yesterdays pieces.
