Struggling to get much done but have had this piece of silk (backed with a bit of old blanket) in my bag and have been stitching here and there when I've had a minute. It is the beginning of my contribution to the Found, Stitched and Dyed project.
The combinations of materials have been really pleasurable to work with. Old wool and silk, and the loveliest threads. Made just down the road in Keighley. I picked up an old sewing box full of vintage spools of button-hole silk twist in a charity shop a few years ago.
I've also been using some of this thread, bought at the Hebden Bridge Rag Market a couple of weeks ago.
It's finer than the twist and the name seems so much less glamorous but it's still a joy to stitch with.
