Black&White, Whatiffing 115-120


This time I've been experimenting with linen on woolen cloth (115, 116, 119 - starting upper left corner), linen on wool roving (117), wool and black lace on blackish woolen cloth (118) and silk fibers on the same (120).

For the first three ones I used the multicoloured package string for decoration, either punching or embroidering with it.

I think the surface of the sample with the red ribbon yarn punched to it (119) looks a bit like granite - maybe I can use that as a background for further Wiking motives ...

(I'll be off for the weekend - going to Vienna - back again Sunday evening! )

Wie ansprechend - bin selbst alle paar Wochen vom Grau-Weiß-Rot-Virus befallen + kann mich nicht satt sehen an der Kombination...

Thank you Paula, Ger, Carolyn!

To Ger: Yes, I like that black&white&red combination a lot too - I think it has a lot of character ...
To Paula: And still I prefer the country side to the fancy capital ... it has another kind of quality!
To Carolyn: Proud to be on your bloglist!
