Getting Back in the Game

Patterns everywhere.

Practice makes perfect, or so they say. So here I was yesterday, back at the machine, sewing, stitching, marking with thread.

I am using repetitive patterns from my image bank of vascular plants, mosses and kelp.

Because I had been away from my sewing machine for a while, I have to build up my ease with manoeuvering, and drawing with the needle. It’s coming back… petit à petit, as they say where I come from.

Looking at countless pictures of kelp and seaweed. I think they are better than ferns! Lots of ridges and patterns to emulate…
