Barkcloth

I bought some barkcloth pieces from Bobbie Britnell on Saturday and have been experimenting. 
 Some printing to start with, which I plan to stitch into and couch - after cutting up and repiecing ?!?! The uneven surface adds texture to printing but would not be ideal for very detailed work.
Watch this space ......

I'm using the "wrong side" as I prefer the softer colour. Saw Sian on Saturday and she told me you've graduated - well done. I'll get there one day!

Interesting surface to work on - prints look good - I'll look forward to seeing how it progresses!
Thanks for your comment on my prints.

I did some reverse applique, inserting a coffee refill pack (!) covered in text and did some spiral stitching. Took it to the Open Studios event and sold it to a lady from Cyprus. She wanted t just as it was. Amazing! Will have to start again on another piece.
