A Holiday Thought Cloth
Jude Hill over at Spiritcloth Blog has inspired me with her Holiday Cloth.
I began by sorting through my fabric stash and chose patterns with green and gold colors. I stitched the background fabrics into place and added a shimmery green sheer on top before stitching some of the leave patterns with gold & teal thread.
If you saw the cloth on my previous blog post, you've noticed that I used a tree shape as a focal image.
It just so happens my most recent purchase was holiday fabric with a variety of tree patterns. When I played around with where to put them, I changed my cloth to a horizontal format instead of a vertical so I could fit the trees off center on the right.
I finished off the piece by diluting some gold fabric paint and dusting the trees with glitter. (The shimmer of the cloth doesn't show up well in a photograph)
