Thread Painting with a Domestic Sewing Machine
I have just got back from a long weekend away with my husband, kids and the rest of the family. We have been camping in Anglesey again. The weather was forecast rain all weekend but that was not the case the weather was glorious and we had a great time. I love the camp site we go to as it is overlooking the sea and I am always inspired to paint! When we came back I thought it would be great if instead of painting I did a bit of free machine embroidery and try emulate the brush strokes I usually make while painting. My Brother sewing machine has been out of action and is always hit and miss but I thought what the heck I would have a go! I'm quite pleased with the result and hope to do some more as long as my machine keeps going!
