Queenie ,thats mulberry bark,(bleached).I got some this week and that was my first play with it.Its lovely fibrous stuff .You can colour it with paints,inks and is used by mixed media artists and freeform embroiderists .
Hi Queenie! Thanks for your nice comments on my first work. Of course your work is stunning! Thank you for telling me what you were using, it looks perfect for a stitch sampler. I love Sharon's class and she is an amazing teacher. I have taken on-line classes before and I have never been given such feedback and instruction. I hope you have a great day! Bettina
Yes, I am looking forward to Sharon's class! I am sure that there will be a lot to learn. And I am also curious how you run an online class. It is a marvelous idea that we attend the same class as 50+ others around the world! Looking at your pictures; I noticed the very colourful bird. It must have taken you a long time to stitch. It looks so vibrant; well done!
Thank you so much for your nice comments on my Schwalm bird. Until the end of March I'll teach a class with this design. I understand that you live a little too far away to be able to attend :). Therefor, I will write up english instructions on how to execute the bird and publish them in early April on this site.
