Stitching some dyed fabrics
We did not have much time left for stitching some of our dyed fabrics.
Ruth asked us to create a piece using strips of our fabric, but it had to be hand stitched so that we could add the strips sensitively. We were not allowed to choose the strips and pin them in order beforehand, we had to choose them one by one as we stitched.
Ruth herself showed us a large selection of her own work, she had plenty to show us and each one was a work of art. The colours were wonderful and something to aim for. She has been doing this for 30 years and I know I will never be able to create anything half as beautiful as she does, but I can only try.
She shared with us her expertise, experience and more than anything her enthusiasm and love of colour. I am so glad I had the opportunity of doing this class with her.
