Moths Today

I've been so quiet on the creative front, but never fear, the action is stirring, fabrics are moving, paint bottles are being disturbed....


In the meantime, thought I would share with you this piece of a moth. Most enjoyed making this one, it was fun coming up with ideas on how to make it a bit furry. A bit of fantasy thrown in there colourwise.

It's a machine embroidery mounted onto a canvas, just a bit bigger than A4 size. And I promise next time I write, I'll have been doing something more than dressmaking, as I'm sure that pictures of my new jeans is not so impressive and a nice bit of textile art!

I've always thought of moths as the poor cousins of the showy butterfly, but that isn't always the case. Many are quite beautiful in their own right - as your lovely moth is.
