Needle book with printed fabric

A needle book using my own screenprinted fabric. I used some small, scrap pieces that I´ve sewn together and then quilted the front and back. It gives it a thick, heavy feeling, I like.  Six pages to store needles.




Hand printing, potato, red cabbage and swirls

Some new embroidery pieces I´m working on. They are both hand printed and then embroidered upon. The V shape above is a potato print. As far as the pattern goes, I like to think about them as birds flying close together.
Below, a hand printed pattern using cabbage, red cabbage to be precise. Have you ever noticed that the center of the cabbage has quite intriguing designs. There are some beautiful swirls going on there.
