I’ve been working on this little cloth for the past few days:
The backing is a very old linen cloth with a hand-worked edging – it’s either very fine crochet or needle-lace, I can’t tell which. The worked area in the middle is made from small pieces from my scraps box, layered and stitched boro-style, with a little piece of hand-stitched patchwork applied in the centre.
I laid a little piece of tea-dyed dress net over one of the patches and then the thought struck me that I could tuck a little scrap of text underneath it before stitching around the edges:
Shadows pass softly through.
