Making marks

The Stitchbook project organised by Helen at Untangled Threads starts in September. However there is starter kit to get us used to slow stitching and mark making.

Exercise one is in mark making, first to divide the calico into boxes, and then to start making marks, slowly, with thought, mindfully.

Using black thread of varying thicknesses.

It has led me to thinking of marks in the environment.

The neat furrows in a ploughed field.

Catkins and branches against clouds and blue sky.

This waterlogged track, the grass and trees.

I am looking forward to this journey to find my voice through stitch.

We recently moved house to Wiltshire to be closer to family. This means I have a lovely new area to explore and being retired time to enjoy my family, the garden, walking, reading, crafting, history and life in general.
