Dear Diary 2014, Week 51

15th December to 21st December 2014
The V&A image for Week 51 is "Part of canopy of brocaded satin, Spitalfields, London, 1726-7
The predominant colour in the V&A image {left} is gold, with tiny coloured flowers scattered around.
My stitch interpretation is a butterfly, that has been machine embroidered on "solvey" a plastic type substance that you wash away once stitching is complete. I have used a varigated sewing thread that was stitched over itself many times to hold together once the solvey was washed away.

My butterfly has been stitched to a piece of gold/yellow hand made paper.

  1. I can certainly imagine your butterfly flitting about through those flowers!
