Green Grillon Postcard
Another work in progress. This is a small textured piece using Wensleydale fleece with other fibres and torn scrim stitched onto a base of grillon thread. The Grillon thread shrinks and distorts the fibres to make a scrummy texture.
The background is embellished knitting yarn on a felt background with some free machine embroidery.
I used the beads to attach the textured piece to the background. I will add more beads and a little hand stitching before I cut it to size and back it to make a proper postcard.
