Just adding some ground to Monolith. This fabric was cut from a pair of charity shop trousers – linen and cotton mix – and over-dyed with Procion golden yellow mixed with a touch of blue. Procion used to make ultramarine blue, but they seem to have replaced it with something they call ‘medium blue’, and which doesn’t have quite the same depth. The frayed edge represents grass quite well here, and I’m adding a few stitches just to hold it all down a little more securely. The golden thread you can see is silk; the darker green is cotton perle no. 8, both dyed with Procion.
You're welcome to pick your way through threads and stitches, but I'd be really grateful if you could be kind enough to refrain from pinning.
