This is one of my many UFO's. It was started at Plas Tan y Bwlch on a course taken with Jill Nicholls. It was inspired by a wall made from blue slate with moss in between each one with these little plants growing here and there. This is a section of a three paneled folder.
The intention was to line the folder with this quilted lining. It was not very successful as the whole folder became too thick and heavy, so I will now make two folders out of the work. I was going to make small samples of various things that interest me at The Plas, using walks in the woods and gardens for inspiration and the folder was to be a container to hold the sketches and stitched samples.
This is dyed calico with screen printing and the motif is one that is often seen carved into the woodwork and stone of the building. I'm not sure if this can be salvaged and used in some way. I have many such pieces unfinished, but don't hold your breath.
Here is another using the same motif.
