It's a very simple bit of stitching really and I just go where I fancy with it, but I would like to add a little extra colour, so this weekend I decided to try it out on a smaller piece.
The background is just watercolour pencil on wet fabric, I dried it out on the pebbles in the garden, it gave me a good idea of the coastal feel I'm after.
A little hint of something there.
When it was dry I added a little more dry pencil.
Now it's time to stitch over it as usual. If the rain ever stops I plan to take this out and about with me so I can cram in a little more stitching time.
When I'm happy I'll try it out on the large piece when the time comes, and if I don't like it, the whole thing can be dunked in some water until the colour fades!
