I borrowed this rather good book from the library.
It ties in very nicely with the mark making sketchbook I am stitching.
It includes where to find inspiration and examples of stitching. I love these parallel lines.
And spirals. One of the exercises it suggests is to analysise the things which draw you to them when you take photos.
I love the circles too.
This is free machine embroidery.
So I had a look at some of the photos I had taken in the last few weeks.
Look at the petals and how they radiate from the centre.
A simple buttercup
Undoubtably circles are important to me, but then so are lines
Burnt post spotted on a recent walk, I love the texture of the wood
And this jumble of items I walked past- it was the ladder and the fence which caught my attention.
Giving me food for thought. What I wonder gives others food for thought. Do please leave a comment, I would love to hear from you.
